Four sent for trial for alleged pub violence

FOUR men have been sent for trial accused of violent disorder following an alleged row in a Dublin pub.

Mark Buckley (33), Graham Farrell (31), David Waldron (37) and Christopher Waldron (32) had books of evidence served on them at Dublin District Court.

Mr Buckley, with an address at Rivervalley Park, Swords, is charged with violent disorder.

The offence allegedly took place at Cabra House Pub, Fassaugh Avenue, Cabra, on August 16 last year.

Mr Buckley is also accused of producing an article during the course of a dispute on the same day and in the same place.

Mr Farrell, of St Attracta Road; Christopher Waldron, of St Fintan's Road; and David Waldron, of Ratoath Road, all Cabra, face similar charges.

A state solicitor said the DPP was consenting to the cases being sent forward for trial to the present sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

The DPP had already directed trial on indictment on all charges.

Judge Michael Walsh gave the defendants the formal warning that they must provide within 14 days to the prosecution details of any alibis they intend to rely on in the course of their trial.

Previously, Gda Peter Kenny said the men made no reply to the charges after caution when they were arrested by arrangement and taken to Finglas Garda Station.

Judge Walsh remanded them on bail to a date later this month.
