This is the man and woman accused of burglary and robbery during an incident in west Dublin.

Lyndsey Fahey (31) is alleged to have stolen a laptop and Apple iPhone and Gerard Halpin (39) is accused of burglary.

The court heard Mr Halpin is facing trial on the charge.

Judge David McHugh adjourned Mr Halpin's matter to a date in September for the service of the book of evidence.

The court heard that DPP's directions remain outstanding in relation to the allegations against Ms Fahey.

Mr Halpin, with an address at Corduff Grove in Blanchardstown, appeared before Blanchardstown District Court charged with burglary.

The crime, contrary to the theft and fraud offences act, allegedly took place at Castlecurragh Heath in Mulhuddart on December 21 last year.

Ms Fahey, of Fortlawn Drive in Blanchardstown, is accused of robbing an Apple iPhone, worth €450, at Castlecurragh Heath in Mulhuddart on December 21, 2013.

She is further accused of stealing a Dell laptop computer, valued at €600.

In relation to Mr Halpin, a State solicitor said the DPP has directed trial on indictment in the Circuit Court on the charges, where the penalties upon conviction are potentially more severe.

The State solicitor asked for more time in relation to Ms Fahey, saying the DPP's office is "reconsidering the matter".

Both accused consented to an adjournment to September.
