Woman on pub assault charge

A YOUNG woman has been charged with seriously assaulting another woman in an incident in a Dublin pub.

Gillian O'Connor (23) had the case against her adjourned by Judge Victor Blake at Dublin District Court to allow her time to decide on how she intends to plead to the charge.

The accused, of Captain's Road, Crumlin, is charged with assault causing harm to a woman at the Palace Bar, Camden Street, on June 10, 2012. The defendant was remanded on continuing bail, to appear in court again on July 11.


A TEENAGER caught with a knife took it from a friend's house to protect himself as he walked home.

Blanchardstown District Court heard that Sean Das (19) had been hospitalised just six weeks earlier after being the victim of a stabbing.

Defence solicitor Fiona Brennan said it was one of the first times that Das, of Oldchurch Avenue in Clondalkin, had been out on his own since the attack.

He was caught carrying the knife by a garda in Monastery Road, Clondalkin, at 3am on February 2.

The court heard the defendant has never been in trouble before.

Judge David McHugh applied the probation act and ordered that the knife be destroyed.


A PENSIONER lashed out at his landlord after he entered the property with a plumber to repair a toilet, a court heard.

Gerard Corr (67) claimed he was hit by the landlord after an angry exchange of words turned violent. The defendant, of Old Navan Road in Castleknock, admitted before Blanchardstown District Court to assaulting his landlord on May 22.

Defence solicitor Valerie Buckley said Corr had lived in the property for the last four years and there have been ongoing issues with the landlord.

Judge David McHugh said it was regrettable that a man of Corr's age had come to court on an assault charge and fined him €250.
