Man in court over 30km garda chase

A YOUNG man has been charged with endangering the life of a garda during a car chase.

Cathal Dunleavy (23), from Meentagh, Kerrykeel, Donegal, is already facing a dozen dangerous driving charges relating to a 30km garda chase last month.

Inspector Michael Harrison told Letterkenny District Court that Mr Dunleavy had also been charged with endangering the life of Garda Patrick Geraghty on the same date.

Mr Dunleavy, he said, had remained silent yesterday after the charge was put to him.

Judge Denis McLoughlin remanded Mr Dunleavy in custody to appear again at Letterkenny District Court this Thursday.
