A Dublin man allegedly grabbed his girlfriend's mother by the hair and smacked her head against a radiator, a court was told.

Kevin Foley (26) is also alleged to have pinned Edel Pierce to the ground and "thumped the head off her".

It is claimed the row came after Ms Pierce intervened in an argument between Mr Foley and her daughter.


Mr Foley, of Ballyogan Drive, Carrickmines, Dublin, appeared before Dún Laoghaire District Court charged with seriously assaulting Ms Pierce in June 2015.

Refusing jurisdiction, Judge Anne Watkin said the allegations were too serious for the district court.

She refused jurisdiction and adjourned the case until March for the book of evidence. Mr Foley has not yet indicated a plea.
