Bail refused for suspected armed robbers

THREE people charged in relation to recent armed robberies in west Dublin have been denied bail.

Patrick Dunne (24), Whitestown Green, Blanchardstown; Linda Dunne (39), Fortlawn Avenue, Clonsilla; and Ann-Marie Byrne (29), Stream- ville Road, Kilbarrack, appeared before Judge David McHugh at Blanchardstown District Court.

Defence solicitors for all three applied for bail for their clients but Garda Paul Oates objected to bail because of the seriousness of the alleged offences and his belief that the suspects may commit further offences.

Assessing the case, Judge David McHugh refused bail for all three and remanded them in custody to appear before Blanchardstown next Wednesday, April 17.
