As­sault ac­cused in plea for bail

Bray People - - News -

A MAN WHO pre­vi­ously fled to Eng­land and stands ac­cused of as­sault caus­ing harm, was asked to come up with an in­de­pen­dent surety for his bail at Bray District Court last week.

Ed­ward McCormack, who pre­vi­ously lived at 42 Con­na­wood Drive, Old Con­naught Av­enue, has no fixed abode the court heard, as he has been in cus­tody since the al­leged of­fence at the end of Au­gust.

The court heard that the al­leged in­jured party also lives at 42 Old Con­na­wood Drive. Gar­dai, ob­ject­ing to bail, said that McCormack, aged 69, has no fam­ily or friends in the area and fled to Eng­land on a pre­vi­ous oc­ca­sion. The al­leged in­jured party, who is at the mo­ment re­cov­er­ing from her in­juries, would be in fear at his release, the court heard.

McCormack’s so­lic­i­tor said that he has never been in trou­ble be­fore, and would be will­ing to hand in his pass­port and sign in daily.

Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan put the mat­ter back to Oc­to­ber 16.
