Two bar staff working at The Briar Rose in Douglas were attacked by a man wielding a knife on Saturday night and now a man accused of assault causing harm to both of them has appeared before Cork District Court.

43-year-old David White of Glencurrig, South Douglas Road, Cork, was arrested by Detective Garda Declan O’Dwyer and charged with two counts of assault causing harm to members of staff at The Briar Rose, Douglas Road, Cork, on Saturday, November 12.

The detective cautioned the accused that any reply could be given in evidence and the defendant made no reply to either charge.

Prosecuting the case, Sergeant John Kelleher said gardaí had no objection to the accused man Mr White being released on bail with particular conditions.

Det Garda O’Dwyer said that gardaí were seeking that Mr White would reside at his home address at Glencurrig Park, South Douglas Road and would stay off all intoxicants as part of his bail conditions. Other conditions included a requirement to sign on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Togher Garda Station and provide gardaí with a mobile phone number at which he would be contactable at all times.

Det Garda O’Dwyer required that the accused would stay away from The Briar Rose and have no contact, directly or indirectly, with the two injured parties.

The defence solicitor, Frank Buttimer, said that he had discussed the bail terms being sought by gardaí with the accused and that he undertook to abide by all conditions.

Judge Olann Kelleher remanded the defendant on bail until January 16 2023 to allow time for directions to be obtained from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
