A FILE is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in the case of a young man who was arrested at the weekend while allegedly carrying an axe outside a house in Moyross.

Jeffery Duggan, 24, of Creagh Avenue, Kileely is accused of possession of the axe while trespassing at a house at Pineview Gardens, Moyross on Sunday night.

The defendant is accused of using “abusive and threatening language” towards gardai as they were arresting him and he is also charged under to the provisions of the Public Order Act with failing to give his correct name and address to gardai following his arrest.

Sgt Michelle Leahy, Henry Street, said directions are being sought from the DPP in relation to the case.

She told Limerick District Court there was no objection to a bail application, which was made by solicitor, Sarah Ryan, on behalf of the accused.

Duggan, who was granted bail on his own bond, was ordered to live at an address in Kileely, and to sign on daily at Mayorstone garda station as a condition of his bail.

He was also ordered to obey a nightly curfew and to “remain sober in public”.

Judge Eamon O’Brien granted the defendant free-legal-aid and he adjourned the case until June 13, next.
