Two men wanted in the UK in relation to a fatal street stabbing there have lodged objections to their extradition at the High Court in Dublin.

Kane Hull (28) of Bower Street, and Liam Porter (32) of Fulmer Place, both addresses in Carlisle, are sought in relation to the murder or manslaughter of Ryan Kirkpatrick (24) at Carlyle's Court, Carlisle, on September 18 of this year.

They were arrested by gardai in Co Mayo late last month on foot of international arrest warrants.

The High Court, which has heard that points of objection against extradition had been filed by each respondent's legal team, adjourned the case today to allow for consideration of these grounds.

The men's cases were adjourned to November 1, for mention.

On September 27 at Cumbria Magistrates Court, accusation warrants were issued for Mr Hull and Mr Porter relating to the fatal stabbing, while Mr Porter is also further wanted in relation to assisting an offender.

Both men previously appeared before the High Court on September 29, after being arrested on foot of Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) warrants.

In the UK, both murder and manslaughter carry a maximum of life imprisonment while assisting an offender carries a maximum of 10 years' imprisonment, the warrant states.

Both men are alleged to have left the UK on September 22, while at last month's hearing gardaí gave evidence of arresting the men in the Carracastle area of Co Mayo.
