A 13-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to murdering a Cork construction worker outside his north London home.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, admitted stabbing 53-year-old Christopher John Barry in Edmonton, north London, after a row on Sunday 14 December 2014.
Mr Barry, originally from Cobh and known locally as Jack, is believed to have got involved in a verbal altercation with a group of males as he attempted to gain entry with his Irish girlfriend into the block of Edmonton flats he lived in.
He was remanded into youth custody by judge Anthony Morris.
The judge ordered a pre-sentence report ahead of sentencing on 10 April.
