Trial for four men accused of violent disorder in pub

THE DPP has been given more time to prepare its case against four men accused of violent disorder following an alleged row in a Dublin pub.

Mark Buckley (33), Graham Farrell (31), David Waldron (37) and Christopher Waldron (32) will appear before the court again in October when they are expected to be served with the book of evidence.

Mr Buckley, of Rivervalley Park in Swords, appeared before Dublin District Court charged with violent disorder at Cabra House Pub, Fassaugh Avenue in Cabra on August 16, 2013.

Mr Buckley is also accused of producing an article during the course of a dispute.

Mr Farrell, of St Attracta Road, Christopher Waldron, of St Fintan's Road, and David Waldron, of Ratoath Road, all in Cabra, are all facing similar charges.

The DPP previously directed trial on indictment in the Circuit Court on the charges.

A State solicitor said the book of evidence was not yet ready, and she requested a four-week adjournment.

As part of their bail conditions, the men must stay out of the Cabra House and its immediate vicinity and have no contact with any witnesses in the case.

The men were signing on daily at their local garda station but this was reduced to three times a week, after gardai said they had no objections.

Judge Patricia McNamara adjourned the matters to October for the book of evidence.
