Ross Callery (20) is charged with violent disorder in relation to an incident in Tallaght in the early hours of Wednesday.

College student James Reid (23) is accused of producing a knife during the course of a dispute.

Detectives alleged that Mr Callery and Mr Reid were captured on CCTV footage at St Dominic's Road around 4am on New Year's Day when Dale Creighton (20) was badly assaulted.

Mr Reid's solicitor, Kevin Tunney, told the court his client "left the scene early", and this was accepted by gardai.

Mr Creighton was on life support and died in Beaumont Hospital on Thursday as a result of head injuries.

Two other people, Graham Palmer (24), of Homelawn Road, and Aisling Burke (20), of Bolbrook Grove, both in Tallaght, appeared in court earlier this week charged with violent disorder.

Judge John O'Neill remanded Mr Callery and Mr Reid on cash bail to appear before the court again on January 16. He also ordered them not to associate with each other or their co-accused.

Mr Callery, of Westpark in Tallaght, appeared before Dublin District Court charged with violent disorder at St Dominic's Road in Tallaght.

Mr Reid, of Homelawn Avenue in Tallaght, is charged with production of a knife during the course of a dispute.

Gardai objected to bail for the men, citing the seriousness of the charges.

Detective Garda Kieran McGrath said it would be alleged that Mr Callery was present at the footbridge at St Dominic's Road when a male was badly assaulted.

In relation to Mr Reid, Gda Brian O'Connor said it would be alleged he produced a knife in the course of an incident where a male was badly assaulted.

There have been eight arrests in relation to this investigation and four people, three men and a woman, have been charged.
