i have known joe byrne for ten years living the american dream through dedicated hard work to support his family. all in our coummunity who know joe find him to be a honest family man with a quick laugh and smile. if you meet joe for the first time you like him instantly. his absence will put a huge strain on his wife eileen and his daughter. we all hope and pray that his situation will be soon resolved in ireland and that he may return to america to fulfill his family dreams.

I feek very sorry for Joe Byrneswife and child, but he did skip bail, his co accused seved prison sentences so surely he should have to face due process. If he is guilty, and that is IF he should not get away with it just because he was in America for 10 years.
It should be remembered that one of the victims of his alleged crimes was an eldery woman who had her lifes savings robbed.
