Limerick man charged with having a hunting knife in pub stabbing

Kilmallock District Court

A MAN who appeared in Kilmallock Court this Tuesday in connection with a pub stabbing in the town was charged with having a hunting knife.

Jeffrey Corr, aged 25, of Brackvoan, Bruff was also charged with assault causing harm and violent disorder on August 20, 2017. He had previously been charged with two assaults on the same date.

A total of three men sustained apparent stab wounds during an altercation in Daffy’s Bar on Kilmallock’s Wolfe Tone Street, and were taken by ambulance to UHL.

Garda Robert Young said Mr Corr “made no reply to the charges after caution”.

The court heard that DPP’s directions were for trial on indictment. Four other males have been charged in connection with the incident.

Con Barry, solicitor for Mr Corr, said he wasn’t making a bail application. Mr Corr was remanded in custody back to Kilmallock Court next Tuesday.
