The alleged incident took place at Centrepoint Business Park, Rosemount Business Park, Ballycoolin on April 24.

The court heard that DPP's directions remain outstanding on the charges as the matter is complicated.

As part of his bail conditions, Mulvaney (above) surrendered his passport and must sign on at his local garda station.
