A YOUNG man has pleaded guilty to charges relating to a stabbing incident on the southside of Limerick city last year.

When arraigned at Limerick Circuit Court, Shane O’Donnell, aged 19, of Clarina Avenue, Ballinacurra Weston pleaded guilty to assaulting another man causing him harm on November 12, last.

The incident, the court heard, happened at Caledonian Place, Edward Street.

Judge Tom O’Donnell was told the charge related to a “knife stabbing” and that the evidence in the case would be “relatively straight forward”.

Barrister Pat Whyms said his client was anxious to have the matter concluded and he requested an early sentencing date.

Noting the guilty plea, Judge O’Donnell adjourned the matter to May 17 next.

He will hear evidence relating to the stabbing on that date.
