A woman has been accused of stealing more than €65,000 from a Dublin credit union.

Susan Redmond, of Thornville Drive, Kilbarrack, faces 11 counts of thefts of various sums totalling €65,500 from Larkhill & District Credit Union between 2006 and 2013.

The 49-year-old faced her second hearing when she app- eared before Judge Brian O'Shea at Dublin District Court yesterday.

The Director of Public Prosecutions had directed that she was to face trial on indictment in the circuit court.

However, her solicitor Niall Walsh told the judge that his client could be sent forward to the circuit court on a signed plea of guilty.

This means a trial would not be necessary and a book of evidence would not have to be served as she would be sent to the higher court for sentencing.

Judge O'Shea noted that she had indicated her plea.

Adjourn

He also agreed to the defence request to adjourn the case until a date in September when the signed plea would be ready.

Legal aid has been granted in the case.

The charges are contrary to the Theft and Fraud Act.
