JUDGE John Cheatle heard shocking details of how a New Ross based garda was threatened, assaulted and left with injuries that he fears could impede his career progress in An Garda Síochána at a sitting of Wexford District Court.

Currently in custody at the Midlands Prison for his part in an aggravated burglary, Tristram Dunne (35) with addresses listed at 37 Monastery Avenue, Taghmon; 56 Rosbercon, New Ross and Harristown, Barntown, appeared before the Judge via videolink facing charges of threatening to kill or cause harm and assault causing harm to New Ross Garda Philip McGrath. A host of other charges were withdrawn by the state after a guilty plea was lodged by Dunne’s barrister Emmet Whitmore.
