He was not at the Court of Criminal Appeal when his case came up for mention today.
He has lodged a statement of means to try to secure legal aid, but the court has put the case back for submissions on whether the scheme applies to him.
Joe O'Reilly is serving a life sentence for the murder of his wife Rachel who was bludgeoned to death at their home in the Naul, North Dublin in October 2004.
