IN her profile posted on the alt.com website, Elaine O'Hara said her ideal person was someone who could "train her to be the best submissive slave she could be".

Ms O'Hara also said she would love a 24/7 relationship but had "no expectations".

A black and white printout of her profile was shown to the jury on screens in the Central Criminal Court.

Giving personal details, she wrote that she "hates these things" as you don't know someone until you meet them.

Part of it, read out by Remy Farrell SC, for the defence, said: "I have been a sub on and off for a while."

Mr Farrell explained that the word meant submissive.

"I have learned a lot but I still have a lot to learn," Mr Farrell continued to read, adding that Ms O'Hara wrote that her fetish was bondage and she wanted to serve her master.

"I would love a 24/7 relations but I have no expectations," he continued reading.

"Call me f*** meat," the profile stated.

Ms O'Hara listed her ideal person as someone who would train her to be the best submissive slave she can be.

" Honest, loyal, frank and trustworthy, possibly caring as well as strict. Looking for someone who wants a 24/7 slave. Email and let's chat," the profile said.


Several boxes were ticked on her profile page including bondage, collar and leads/leash, kidnapping, knife play, mummification, sensory deprivation, spanking, slap in the face and verbal humiliation.

Ms O'Hara listed her own date of birth on the sheet and described herself as a 36-year-old female and non-smoker.

Her profile picture was of a female bent over and tied up, the court was told.

Also in evidence yesterday, the court heard from Maire O'Brien, who said she lived at Ardmeen Lodge in Blackrock and rented a room out to Ms O'Hara on December 7, 2008.

She had not known her before that.

In cross-examination, she told defence barrister Ronan Kennedy she was aware that Ms O'Hara had self-harmed.

Ms O'Hara told her about a website she used but she did not remember the name.

Ms O'Hara told her at one point that she had met a guy and brought him back and they had a "very nice chat".

Ms O'Brien said Ms O'Hara told her they had exchanged details but she was "a bit disappointed because maybe they hadn't that much in common".

Eamon Slater later confirmed to the jury that his mother had rented a flat to Ms O'Hara in a converted garage at Rockville Crescent in Blackrock.

The trial continues before Mr Justice Tony Hunt and the jury.
