Three teenagers, including two brothers, have appeared in court charged with the rape of a 15-year-old girl.

Two of the teenagers are aged 17 and from Tallaght, while the third teenager, aged 15, is from Dublin and is the second teenager's brother.

All three appeared separately before Judge Patricia McNamara at Tallaght District Court yesterday.

They are all charged with raping the female at a location in Tallaght on January 25, 2016. The third teenager is also charged with sexually assaulting the same female on the same day.

The three teenagers would have been aged 16, 16 and 14 at the time of the alleged incident. Sergeant Eithne Madden gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution by certificate in respect of each accused.

She said the DPP had directed trial on indictment and asked for a remand for eight weeks for service of the book of evidence.
