Man deported from US is remanded in custody after arrest at Dublin airport
A man who was deported from the United States and subsequently arrested at Dublin Airport appeared before both the district and circuit court in Dundalk.
Aaron Brady (26), of Monog Road, Crossmaglen, Co Armagh, was remanded in custody by both courts which had issued warrants for his arrest after he failed to appear to face a number of charges dating from 2011.
In the district court, Sgt John Moroney told Judge John Coughlan that he arrested the accused at Dublin Airport at 7.43am yesterday on foot of a bench warrant issued by Judge Flann Brennan in March 2013.
Judge Coughlan was told that an application for bail was being made as the accused had been doing some work before he went to America.
The judge asked why he had gone to America and his barrister said he had family there and had indicated to him that he had very little means.
Brady was remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court next Tuesday. The judge also directed that gardai be given five days' notice of any proposed bail application.
The district court warrants were issued after Brady failed to appear to face a number of motoring charges.
He then appeared in the circuit court, which is in the same building, where Judge Petria McDonnell heard that a warrant was issued for Brady after he failed to appear on April 23, 2013 when he was on the list for sentencing for a number of offences.
The judge was told that Brady was surrendering to go into custody and was not making a bail application.
His barrister told the judge he had only just learnt of the matter, and in the circumstances he asked if she would list it for next week's sitting of the court for a bail application.
He also made an application for legal aid, saying his client had been deported, was of no means at the moment and was not in a position of occupancy.
The judge told him to prepare the paperwork for a legal aid application.
She remanded him in custody to next Wednesday in relation to the circuit court matters.
Brady is before the circuit court in relation to three charges for offences committed in 2011.
He admitted the unauthorised taking of a car, criminal damage to a car and dangerous driving in Dundalk town centre.
