A garda has denied he told a brother of the late notorious criminal 'Dublin Jimmy' there was plenty of room at his premises "upon which to plant cocaine".

Truck and car dealer Fran McGuinness made the allegation about the garda in legal proceedings where he is seeking a temporary injunction restraining gardaí from "watching" or "besetting" him.

Mr McGuinness (59) has claimed the comment was made to him at his premises near Swords, Co Dublin, on October 22 last year after he asked an officer, who wanted "a word" with him, to leave.
