A DUBLIN man accused of stealing a cash register during the course of a robbery has been sent forward for trial.

Daryl Mooney (29) has been ordered to stay away from any witnesses for the duration of the case.

The accused, with addresses at Virginia Drive, Finglas, and Whitestown Park, Blanchardstown, appeared before Blanchards-town District Court charged with robbery.

The matter, contrary to the Theft and Fraud Offences Act, allegedly took place at Whitestown Stores, Whitestown Avenue, in Blanchardstown, last October 7.

It is alleged that Mr Mooney stole a cash register, worth €200, during the robbery.

He is also accused of possession of a knife at the same time and place.

State solicitor Karen Wilson said the book of evidence had been served on Mr Mooney, who goes forward to the present sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Defence solicitor Terence Hanahoe and one junior counsel were assigned on free legal aid.

Judge Denis McLoughlin gave Mr Mooney the formal alibi caution, warning him he had 14 days to provide to the State details of anyone he proposed calling as a witness in his defence.

He also ordered that a video copy of a garda interview with Mr Mooney be provided to his legal team.
