A FORMER clerk at the Limerick branch of the former Anglo Irish Bank will be sentenced in the summer after he pleaded guilty to fraud offences.

When arraigned at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court on Friday, Gordon O’Brien, aged 42, of Springfield, Dooradoyle, pleaded guilty to dishonestly operating a computer with the intention of making gain or causing loss contrary to Section 9 of the Theft and Fraud Offences Act.

The offence happened at Anglo Irish Bank, Henry Street, Limerick on September 15, 2010.

The father-of-two first appeared in court last December after he was arrested and charged following an Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation

Previously, Dublin District Court was told the loss to the bank was around €200,000.

Dean Kelly BL, representing Mr O’Brien, told the court his client has no previous convictions and he requested an early sentencing date as he is “under stress” as a result of the court proceedings.

Judge Ring remanded O’Brien on continuing bail until July when she will hear the facts of the case.
