Off-licence robbery accused is sent for trial
A Dublin man accused of robbing an off-licence has been sent forward for trial.
Emmet McAuley (30) allegedly produced a knife during the course of the robbery.
The accused, with an address at St Finian's Avenue, Lucan, appeared before Blanchardstown District Court charged with robbery.
The robbery allegedly took place at Carry Out, Main Street, Celbridge, last May 30.
Mr McAuley is further charged with producing a knife during the course of a robbery.
A state solicitor said the book of evidence had been served on the accused, who goes forward to the present sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.
Judge David McHugh gave Mr McAuley the formal alibi warning, telling him he had 14 days to provide to the State details of anyone he proposes calling as a witness in his defence.
Defence solicitor Terence Hanahoe and one junior counsel were assigned on free legal aid.
The judge also ordered that a video of an interview gardai conducted with the accused be furnished to his legal team.
Judge McHugh remanded Mr McAuley on bail to appear before Dublin Circuit Court next week. The accused has not yet indicated a plea to the charges.
