Mr Justice Paul Butler said he did not wish to add comments as the President of the High Court, Mr Justice Nicholas Kearns, had already paid a tribute to Judge Carney.

The court then stood and a moment of silence was observed.

The 72-year-old former judge died yesterday following a short illness. He had served 24 years as a High Court judge and was forced to retire last April on age grounds. 

Judge Kearns yesterday said Judge Carney’s death, coming so soon after his retirement, “is a sad loss for his family and for the judiciary which he served with such distinction for so many years.”

Judge Carney, a married father of four, was called to the Bar in 1966 and was appointed a High Court judge in 1991.
