DUBLIN - Deaf man charged with manslaughter of bus crash victim 'very sorry.' A Deaf man has apologised for the death of a man who was hit by a bus following an alleged roadside altercation.
Edward Connors, who is profoundly Deaf, has been charged with the manslaughter of Eoghan Dudley. The 28-year-old died last Thursday evening after suffering severe head injuries in the incident in Dublin city centre.
