Kevin Murray, known as “Flat Cap”, is receiving end-of-life care at the palliative facility in the North, according to reports in today’s Irish Star.

It was previously revealed that Murray wasn’t likely to see his trial over the Regency Hotel attack due to ill health caused by motor neuron disease.

Sources say that he is now completely immobile and unable to speak.

Murray was released on bail in January after his legal team argued that the deteriorating medical condition meant that he posed no flight risk.

He had been arrested in September on foot of a European Arrest Warrant in relation to the Regency Hotel attack.
