Man charged as body dug up

AN undertaker has been charged with illegally exhuming the remains of a 95-year-old man from a grave.

The coffin containing the body of Joseph 'Josie' Graham was dug up from a plot at a cemetery on the outskirts of Patrickswell, Co Limerick, last February.

The pensioner died two years previously.

Donal Daffy (59), of Skagh, Croom, Co Limerick, has now been charged with exhuming a body without a license from Clounanna Cemetery, Patrickswell, on February 26 last year.

The case was adjourned until February 14 for hearing.
