A man appeared at a sitting of Dublin District Court on Saturday evening charged with the murder of Cathy Ward.

Alan Ward (51), wearing a grey hoody and jeans, didn’t speak during the brief hearing in front of Judge Victor Blake.

Sergeant Bat Moriarty said that Ward made no reply when cautioned on Saturday afternoon as a copy of the charge sheets were handed to him by Sgt Declan O’Sullivan.

Judge Blake remanded the accused man in custody to appear at Cloverhill District on Friday 8 March.
