Kevin Tierney (46) allegedly left his brother needing stitches to a split lip.

Judge David McHugh adjourned the case to a date in December for hearing.

The accused, of Old Finglas Road in Glasnevin, appeared before Blanchardstown District Court charged with seriously assault.

The assault allegedly took place at Old Finglas Road in Glasnevin on February 28, 2015.

In relation to the allegation, Sergeant Maria Callaghan previously claimed Mr Tierney punched the victim twice on the face.

The sergeant alleged the victim suffered a broken tooth and a cut to the forehead.

A medical report of the alleged injuries was handed into court.

Judge McHugh previously accepted jurisdiction of the charge, meaning the matter remains in the District Court.

Defence solicitor Valerie Buckley said her client was seeking a hearing date in relation to the allegation.

A State solicitor said there will be four prosecution witnesses.

Judge McHugh adjourned the matter to a date in early December for hearing.
