A young Limerick man was arrested and charged with assaulting a young woman in Mayfield in Cork and later assaulting two gardaí.
Sergeant Damian McNamara said gardaí were objecting to bail being granted to Harry O’Brien of 18 Abbeyview, Lee Estate, Limerick.
Sgt. McNamara brought O’Brien before Cork District Court on charges of assaulting a woman at Liffey Park, Mayfield, today, being threatening and abusive and being drunk and a source of danger there and later assaulting Garda Keith Nolan, wilfully obstructing the same guard, and assaulting Garda Killian O’Connell at Gurranabraher garda station.
Defence solicitor, Thomas Coughlan, said the defence was reserving its position on bail and might make such an application next week.
Judge Olann Kelleher remanded the accused in custody until May 19 to appear again at Cork District Court by video link from prison.
Mr Coughlan said that the accused was on job seekers allowance and he asked for free legal aid for O’Brien and this was granted.
No background details were given in court today as no allegations were required to be given in the absence of a bail application.
