Prisoner 88335, Graham Dwyer, has been keeping a low profile in jail since his conviction for the murder of Elaine O’Hara.

Dwyer, who was unanimously convicted by a jury last Friday of murdering Elaine O’Hara for his own sexual gratification in 2012, will receive an automatic life sentence on the 20th of April.

Reports in the Irish Independent today claim that the killer’s biggest problem is filling in his time as he sits in his cell because he is not allowed access to the Internet.

Dwyer will remain in Cloverhill until he has been formally sentenced to life imprisonment by the Central Criminal Court.

After sentencing he will be immediately taken to Mountjoy Prison where he will be processed and then transferred to wherever he is to serve out his jail term.


Dwyer will be held in Mountjoy prison for several days while he assessed and processed.

The Foxrock Architect may be housed with the likes of hitman Keith Wilson or career criminal Warren Dumbrell, who was linked with the brutal beating of disgraced cocaine dealing garda Stephen Cooper.

Dwyer could be held in Mountjoy for days while prison authorities work out where to send the high profile killer.

Sources say it is likely to be Arbour Hill, the Dublin prison for male sex offenders, but may also be a protected wing in another institution.

Dwyer is currently being held under a restricted regime as prison officers minimise the risk that he might be harmed, either by himself or by other inmates.
