Gloria Odigie, who has been accused of threatening a neighbour with a knife

A WOMAN has been accused of wielding a knife and threatening a neighbour during a row at her home in west Dublin.

Gloria Odigie (45) had the case against her adjourned at Blanchardstown District Court.

Ms Odigie, with an address at Liffey Rise, Liffey Valley Park, Lucan, is charged with producing a knife in the course of a dispute.

The charge alleges this was done in a manner likely to intimidate another.

The offence is contrary to Section 11 of the Firearms and Offensive Weapons Act and is alleged to have happened last August 17.

Sgt Mary Doherty told Judge David McHugh the DPP had consented to summary disposal of the case at district court level, subject to jurisdiction being considered.

Outlining the prosecution's case, she said it would be alleged that a neighbour of the accused called gardai on the day in question.

The woman alleged that the accused was threatening her and had a knife.

Asked by the judge to elaborate, the sergeant said Ms Odigie allegedly "wielded a large knife in the course of a verbal dispute".

Judge McHugh accepted jurisdiction.

He made an order for disclosure of prosecution documents to the defence and adjourned the case to a date next month.

Ms Odigie has not yet indicated how she intends to plead.

She was remanded on continuing bail.
