Boy (16) was armed for northside vs southside fight

A DUBLIN teenager, who armed himself with a metal bar for a "northside boys against southside boys" fight, has been remanded on bail pending sentence.

The 16-year-old pleaded guilty yesterday to possessing the bar as a weapon at the Irish Financial Service Centre, in Dublin, on July 7.

The boy was remanded for sentencing in January at Dublin Children's Court. Judge Clare Leonard also asked for a probation report to be prepared.
