Defence Counsel, Soirse O Dunlaing, asked the court for an adjournment to November 1.

The defendant, he said, was originally on bail and was now looking for bail to allow an opportunity to raise money towards compensation. He said the digger had been recovered.

Prosecuting Counsel, Sinead Gleeson, said there was no objection to bail.
