THE case against an Irish international football star charged with violent disorder outside a Dublin nightclub has been adjourned for six weeks.

Jeff Hendrick (23) was remanded on continuing bail in his absence yesterday after a court heard the prosecution was seeking more time.

The Derby County midfielder is charged with violent disorder in an alleged incident in Dublin city centre two years ago.

A co-accused man, Jonathan Doran (24), is charged with violent disorder and assaulting a man.

Judge Patrick Clyne adjourned both cases to a date in December after a State solicitor said a dental report was being sought in relation to Mr Doran’s assault charge.

Mr Hendrick (inset) had been excused from appearing in court yesterday and Judge Clyne said he did not need to be present on the next date.

The footballer, originally from Kilmore in north Dublin, is charged with violent disorder on Harcourt Street on October 12, 2013.

Mr Doran, from Kilmore Close, Artane, is charged with violent disorder and assault causing harm to a man at

Montague Street on the same date.

Neither man has indicated yet how they intend to plead to the charges.
