Two men have appeared in court charged with the murder of father-of-two Vincent Parsons in Tallaght in August.

Judge Bryan Smyth, sitting in Dublin District Court yesterday, heard that Sean Carlyle (27), of Donomore Avenue, Tallaght, was arrested on Tuesday and charged at Tallaght Garda Station.

Detective Garda Conor Harrison said Carlyle made no reply when charged.

Both men were charged with the murder of Mr Parsons at Killinarden Way on August 24.

Both men were remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court next Wednesday.

He was taken to Tallaght Hospital by gardai where he was pronounced dead two days later.

The solicitor for Sean Carlyle, Michael Hennessy, said an application for bail would be made for his client through the High Court. Both men were granted legal aid.
