A JUDGE has issued arrest warrants for two women who failed to appear in court today on charges related to a massive garda operation earlier this week.

Ann Marie O’Donoghue, (46), from Brownswood, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford and Nora O’Reilly, (44), The Cresent, Beaumont Heights, Ferrybank, Waterford, were due to appear at Glenties District Court today.

Gda Dylan Conroy told Judge Paul Kelly that the women were detained at their homes on Tuesday.

“It was part of a major operation involving 80 gardai targeting crime,” said Gda Conroy.

The garda said both women were arrested and were released on €200 garda bail.

He said he was on the garda operaton and both women had been charged with thefts at two shops in Ardara, Co Donegal, on September 12 last year.

The witness said the women had remained silent when the charges were put to them.

However he told the judge that neither of the two accused had appeared in court today.

Judge Kelly issued warrants for their arrest.
