Man on sex with alsatian charge sent forward for trial reporters

A 57-year-old man appeared in court in Limerick today on one count of buggery with a German Shepherd dog connected with the suspicious death of a woman.

Sean McDonnell, of Churchill Meadows, Raheen, Limerick was sent forward for trial at the Circuit Court in relation to the incident.

Mother-of-four Carol Hickey (43) died on October 7 2008 when she became unwell at a house in Patrickswell.

McDonnell is charged with buggery of the animal at 26 Laurel Park, Patrickswell, Co Limerick on October 7 2008.

A garda investigation following Mrs Hickey’s death resulted in the arrest and charging of the accused man.

He was today served with the Book of Evidence in the case at Limerick District Court and sent forward for trial at the next sitting of the Circuit Court later this year.

Mrs Hickey was from Galbally, Co Limerick where she was the secretary of the local community association.
