A man has been charged with robbery and endangerment of life following a crash minutes after an alleged raid.

Jacqueline McGovern (54) died after being hit by a car as she walked on a footpath in Killiney, Co Dublin

Darren Rowe (34), with an address at Dunedin Terrace, Monkstown, is charged with endangerment of life at Avondale Road in Killiney on March 10, and robbery of the Centra store on Barnhill Road in Dalkey on the same date.

Judge Grainne Malone remanded him in custody for a week.

He is the third man to be charged in connection with the incident - on Thursday, two others appeared in court accused of robbery and were also remanded in custody.

Detective Garda Brian Davoren gave evidence at Dún Laoghaire District Court of arresting and charging Mr Rowe. He said Mr Rowe had nothing to say.

Defence solicitor Sandra Frayne said her client might be making a bail application next Friday, and she would notify the court service if so.

Mr Rowe was remanded to appear in Cloverhill District Court on March 27, for directions by the DPP.

It is alleged he created a "substantial risk of death or serious injury to another".

On Thursday Edward Andrews, of Belarmine Hall, Stepaside, Co Dublin, and Terry Meegan from Ridge Hall, Ballybrack were both remanded in custody on charges of robbery.

Their cases were adjourned to Cloverhill District Court on March 26.
