Longford District Court: Sent forward for trial

Three men, one of whom is a minor, who appeared at last week’s sitting of Longford District Court charged under the Criminal Justice Act were sent forward for trial to the next sitting of Longford Circuit Court.  

Jamie Brady (20), 102 Teffia Park, Longford appeared before Judge Seamus Hughes charged with committing violent disorder at Fee Court, Longford on September 6, 2015. 

He was also further charged with assault causing  harm at Fee Court, Longford on the same date.  

Meanwhile Danny McLoughlin (18), 2 Railway Court, Newtownforbes, Co Longford also appeared before the Judge charged in connection with the incident. 

Mr McLoughlin is charged too with assault and committing violent disorder at Fee Court, Longford on September 6, 2015.

The minor who cannot be named was also charged in connection with the matter. 

Solicitor Mark Connellan told the court that the books of evidence in the case had been served on all defendants earlier and the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) had directed that they be sent forward for trial on indictment in respect of the matter to the next sittings of Longford Circuit Court. 

He subsequently requested that they be returned for trial to Longford Circuit Court on November 1 next.   

Judge Hughes then issued the defendants with the Alibi warning and ordered them to appear back at court on November 1, 2016.
