A 33-year-old man who has pleaded not guilty to dangerous driving causing the death of GAA commentator Paudie Palmer allegedly told friends he had consumed alcohol and left the scene of an accident.

The 65-year-old broadcaster with C103 and 96FM died at Cork University Hospital on the 8th of January last year.

Bohdan Bezverkhyi of Rigsdale House, Rigsdale, Ballinhassig, Co Cork has pleaded not guilty to dangerous driving causing the death at Dunkereen Cross in Innishannon on 29th of December 2022.

He pleaded guilty to the charges of failing to report the incident to Gardaí, failing to offer assistance, failing to stop, and leaving the scene of the crash.

Prosecution barrister, Brendan Kelly gave an outline of the evidence to the jury at the Central Criminal Court in Cork, which he stressed was not evidence in itself.

Mr. Kelly said it would be the state's case that Mr Palmer had right-of way-on the road.

The case continues next Tuesday.
