A homeless man charged with the murder of a Romanian man in a Tallaght park last week, is a "serious flight risk", a court has heard.

At Tallaght District Court yesterday, Judge Patricia McNamara remanded Feri Anghel (38) in custody, to appear before Cloverhill District Court next Friday, April 27.

Mr Anghel, of no fixed abode, is charged with murdering Ioan Artene Bob at Sean Walsh Park, Tallaght, on April 13, 2018.

Mr Bob (49) died in Tallaght Hospital on April 13 after he was found seriously injured, but alive, by a passer-by in Sean Walsh Park, just before 8am that day.

The emergency services were alerted and he was treated by paramedics before being taken to Tallaght Hospital.

Mr Bob had lived in Ireland for the last three years.

He worked in construction and had a partner and an eight-year-old son in Romania.

Yesterday morning, Mr Anghel appeared in custody before Judge McNamara.

The Romanian national, who has short black hair and a prominent black beard, wore a black hoodie.

Sergeant Shay Palmer told the court that he arrested Mr Anghel at 10.16pm on Thursday night at Tallaght Garda Station.

He said that at 12.20am yesterday morning, Mr Anghel was charged by Sergeant Brian Norton. He said Mr Anghel replied "no" to the charge.

Sgt Palmer added that as Mr Anghel was charged with murder, bail was not available in the District Court.


Mr Anghel's solicitor, Richard Young, told Judge McNamara that his client could provide an address.

However, Sgt Palmer said that he was not satisfied with the address.

"I believe he is a serious flight risk given the nature of the charge," he added.

Judge McNamara remanded Mr Anghel in custody to appear before Cloverhill District Court on April 27.
