A WOMAN has been sent for trial accused of having more than €13,000 worth of cocaine and cannabis at a house in west Dublin.

Anne Marie Buckley (34) had a book of evidence served on her at Blanchardstown District Court.

Ms Buckley, with an address c/o Crosscare, Amiens Street, Dublin 1, is charged with possession of cocaine and cannabis with intent to sell or supply.

She is also charged with sale or supply of more than €13,000 worth of the drugs, as well as related counts of simple possession.

The offences are alleged to have happened on February 19 last year at Mount Bellew Rise, Lucan.

A garda witness said he charged the accused with the latest, more serious count before the court and she made no reply after caution.

A State solicitor said the DPP was directing trial on indictment.

Judge David McHugh gave Ms Buckley the formal warning that she must provide to the prosecution details of any alibi she intends to rely on within 14 days.

The judge also ordered disclosure by the prosecution of copies of the video of the accused's garda interview.

He extended legal aid to cover two counsel at the request of Defence Solicitor Terence Hanahoe.

Judge McHugh sent Ms O'Brien forward to the next sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court. She was remanded on bail on existing terms.
