Two more charged with involvement in James 'Mago' Gately attempted murder

Two more men were charged on Friday evening at the Special Criminal Court with involvement in the attempted murder of Kinahan cartel target James 'Mago' Gately.

Mr Gately was shot multiple times as he sat in his car at the Topaz filling station on the Clonashaugh Road, Dublin 17th, on May 10, 2017.

David Duffy (33) of Greenfort Lawns, Clondalkin, Dublin 22, and Douglas Glynn (35) of Fitzgibbon Court, Dublin 1, both appeared at the non-jury court charged with the offence under Section 72 (1) of the Criminal Justice Act 2006.

The charge alleges that between December 7th, 2016, and April 6th, 2017, both dates inclusive, and with knowledge of the existence of a criminal organisation, and with the intention of enhancing the ability of the said criminal organisation, or any of its members, to commit a crime or a serious offence, namely the murder of James Gately, participated in or contributed to activities connected with the said offence.

Mr Duffy is accused of the offence at a location within the State while Mr Glynn is accused of the offence within and outside of the State.

Detective Garda Anthony Kennedy told Ms Ciara Vibien, for the State, that he arrested Mr Duffy at 7.06am at his home on Thursday, July 16th, and conveyed him to Irishtown Garda Station where he was cautioned and detained.

On foot of a DPP direction that both men be tried at the Special Criminal Court, both were charged in the body of the Criminal Courts of Justice building on Friday afternoon.

Solicitor Mr Brian Coveney, for Mr Duffy, said that a bail application and a free legal aid application on behalf of his client would be made on July 31st at the three-judge court and he was remanded in custody to that date.

Detective Garda Jonathan O'Leary told Ms Vibien that he arrested Mr Glynn at 7.01am at Alfie Byrne House, Dublin 1, and that he conveyed Mr Glynn also to Irishtown Garda Station where he was cautioned and detained.

Mr Simon Matthews BL, for Mr Glynn, also said that he would make a bail application and a free legal aid application on July 31st.

Presiding judge Mr Justice Alexander Owens ordered both to be remanded in custody to reappear at the court on July 31st.

Friday's charging brings the total number of those who have appeared before the courts in relation to participation in the attempted murder to five.
