FOUR Dublin men were ordered to stay out of Limerick city and county after they were charged with handling stolen jewellery worth thousands of euro.
The four are each charged with handling 18 items of jewellery worth around €5,000 and around €2,000 worth of Egyptian currency which was stolen from a house at Lissanalta Drive, Dooradoyle on October 28, last.
All four were arrested on the M7 near Roscrea, County Tipperary a number of hours after the items were stolen

At Limerick Court, Garda Dave Givens said none of the defendants made any reply when they were charged.
Sgt Donal Cronin said a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in relation to the matter and he told the court that further charged may be brought.
All four men were granted bail by Judge Eugene O’Kelly subject to strict conditions.
They must each sign on daily at their local garda station between 9am and midday and again between 5pm and 8pm. They must live at their home addresses and they must obey a nightly curfew.
Sgt Cronin also asked that the men be ordered to stay away from Limerick city and county except when they are attending court sittings or legal consultations.
