A 21 year old man has appeared in court charged with robbing a publican in Drogheda.

Karl Nugent from Brickfield, Drogheda faces a single charge of allegedly robbing €420 cash from Liam Hodson.

The offence is alleged to have occurred at the Marsh House, Marsh Road, Drogheda last Saturday, November 16.

Evidence of arrest, charge and caution was presented to the court and garda inspector Brendan Cadden said there was no objection to bail being granted subject to a number of conditions.

They are that the accused lives at the address in Brickfield, Trinity Gardens, Drogheda, that he observes a curfew between 6pm and 8am daily and that he sign on daily at Drogheda garda station.

Judge Sinead Ni Chulachan granted bail subject to those conditions on his own bond of €500 with an independent surety of €1,000.

The Judge was told that he was not in a position to take up the bail so he was remanded in custody with consent to appear at Cloverhill district court on November 21.

Defence solicitor Paddy Goodwin asked for legal aid which the Judge granted.
