Man accused of sports centre robbery
A man has been charged with carrying out a robbery at a city centre sports club in which more than €4,000 was allegedly stolen.
William Beresford (44) was granted bail when he appeared before Dublin District Court.
He was ordered to have no contact with anyone in the club as a condition of bail and his case was adjourned for two months.
Mr Beresford is charged with robbing a man and woman of €4,400 in cash at the Station Sports Club, Amiens Street, on August 20.
The prosecuting garda said he arrested the defendant in the north inner city and took him to Store Street Garda Station, where he was charged.
The officer said he had no objection to bail in the case, subject to conditions being imposed.
Judge Grainne O'Neill granted bail in the defendant's own bond of €200.
He must surrender his passport and any other documents to the gardai at the earliest opportunity.
He is also to reside at his home address at Kippure Park, Finglas, and provide a telephone number at which he is contactable at all times.
He is to notify the gardai of any change of address and sign on twice weekly at Finglas Garda Station.
The accused took up his bail and the case was adjourned to a date in October, for the directions of the DPP to be made available.
