Zoltan Almasi (44) with an address at Harbour View, Naas, Co. Kildare was charged with murdering Joseph Dunne at the same address on May 16 2014.
Two weeks ago at the Central Criminal Court Almasi pleaded not guilty to murdering Mr Dunne.
Today the jury of six men and six women returned a majority verdict of guilty of murder after eleven hours and 13 minutes deliberating.
It was the State’s case that Mr Almasi attacked Joseph Dunne with a baseball bat after he hit his white Mercedes van.
The court heard Mr Almasi lived alone at Harbour View in rented accommodation and worked for a courier company.
He was born in Serbia but became a Hungarian national around 2007. The prosecution said that shortly after this Mr Almasi came to Ireland.
