A 40-YEAR-OLD woman and two younger men appeared at Dublin District Court today charged with holding up a filling station.

The charges arise from the robbery of the Topaz filling station in Clonsilla Road, Dublin 15, on Thursday night.

Suzanne O'Connell, of Whitestown Crescent, Blanchardstown, was released on bail on E100, but with strict Garda conditions - including a curfew from 8pm to 7am each night - attached.

She was also ordered to make no contact with her co-accused or any witnesses in the case.

Daniel McMahon, 21, was also released on his own bail of E100 with similar conditions attached.

The second man, Jason Flaherty, 19, of Blanchardstown, is facing other charges and was remanded in custody.

Meanwhile, in a separate case at the Dublin District Court a father and son from Drogheda, Co Louth, were today charged with the possession of cannabis with an estimated street value of E1.3 million.

The drugs were seized by gardai during a raid on a house in Termonfeckin, Co Louth, on Friday.

Michael Devlin, 58, and Michael Jnr, 30, from Finnian's Street in Drogheda, Co Louth, were remanded in custody to appear before Cloverhill District Court on Friday, September 27.
