Limerick man has bail revoked by judge following violent incident

Limerick Courthouse, Mulgrave Street

A JUDGE has revoked the bail of a man who is awaiting sentence in relation to a violent incident at the National Kart Centre in Limerick.

Dean O’Donoghue, 27, of Hyde Road, Prospect, Limerick has pleaded guilty to a charge of violent disorder relating to an incident in Corbally on January 7, 2017.

Seeking to revoke his bail, John O’Sullivan BL, instructed by State Solicitor Padraig Mawe, said one of the conditions of his bail was that he be of good behaviour and he submitted he had breached that condition.

He said Mr O’Donoghue has come to the attention of gardai in recent weeks and was arrested and charged following an alleged assault in the city centre on January 21, last.

Gardai Brian Guilfoyle gave evidence in relation to that incident and CCTV was also played during the hearing.

While commenting that the defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence, Judge Tom O’Donnell said he was granting the application and revoking bail.
