THE trial is expected to begin later today of a Limerick man who is accused of threatening to kill a senior detective garda.

Darren O’Halloran, aged 31, who has an address at Aura Cottage, Dublin Road denies making the threats at Henry Street garda station on April 2, 2015.

He also denies threatening to cause damage to the detective’s home, which is located outside of Limerick.
