TWO Dublin men have been sent for trial charged with seriously assaulting a man and producing a knife in an incident at a post office in the west of the city.

Terence Maughan (24) and John Maughan (30), both from Clondalkin, had books of evidence served on them at Blanchardstown District Court.

Terence Maughan, of Grangeview Place and John Maughan, of Castlegrange Square are both charged with assault causing harm to a man at Clondalkin Post Office.

They are also charged with producing a knife in the course of a dispute while committing the offence of assault.

The charges are under the Non Fatal Offences Against the Person and Firearms and Offensive Weapons Acts.

The offences are alleged to have happened on February 27, 2013.

Judge David McHugh gave the defendants the formal warning that they must provide within 14 days to the prosecution details of any alibis they intend to rely on in the course of their trial.

He also made an order for disclosure by the prosecution of copies of the video of the defendants' garda interview.

He then sent them forward to the next sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

They were remanded on bail in their own bonds of €100, with no conditions.

The judge granted free legal aid for the accused men's solicitor Simon Fleming and one junior counsel.

Gardai did not object.
