A Dublin man is facing trial on a money laundering charge after detectives allegedly seized more than €300,000 in crime proceeds.

Mark Connolly (44) was served with the book of evidence when he appeared on bail before Blanchardstown District Court.

Mr Connolly, of Harelawn Park in Clondalkin, is charged with handling or possessing a total of €311,740 in cash.

The alleged incident took place at an apartment at Beacon South Quarter in Sandyford on May 4, 2017.

Mr Connolly and a second man were arrested following the cash find.

Evidence

A State solicitor said the book of evidence was ready and had been served on the accused, who goes forward to the next sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Judge David McHugh gave Mr Connolly the formal alibi caution.

Defence solicitor Jonathan Dunphy and one junior counsel were assigned on free legal aid.

The accused has not yet indicated a plea to the charge. Mr Connolly's co-accused was previously sent for trial.

The men will appear before the circuit court on a date in October.
