A Longford man who allegedly assaulted a female during the course of an incident last year has been told he is to stand trial.

The charge relates to an alleged incident on September 9, 2019 at 17 Battery Road, Longford and culminated in a section 3 assault charge being handed down.

Mr Kelleher was given the alibi warning by Judge Hughes and remanded on continuing bail until October 6, 2020.
