JOHN Dundon who is accused of threatening to kill a mother and her daughter during two separate incidents earlier this month has been refused bail.

Dundon, 29, who has an address at 80 Hyde Road, is charged with makig the threats at an address in Limerick city on the weekend of April 3 and 4 this year.

Shane O’Callaghan BL, representing Mr Dundon questioned the credibility of the alleged injured party during the bail application.

However, Judge Tom O’Donnell said any concerns about “the propriety of the person making the allegations” is a matter that can be dealt with if the case is sent forward for trial.

Mr O’Callaghan said since there is one witness in the case, there is no reason why the statutory 42 days for service of the book of evidence should be breached.

Remanding Mr Dundon in custody until May 11, Judge O’Donnell told Inspector Seamus Nolan of Henry Street Garda Station that he wants every effort made to have the DPP’s directions canvassed on the matter.
