Bray People - - FRONT PAGE -

A 28-year-old Wick­low man has ad­mit­ted that he at­tempted to mur­der an­other man in the county last year.

Eoghan O’Con­nell of Dar­gle Heights, Bray, was ar­raigned be­fore the Cen­tral Crim­i­nal Court on Fri­day morn­ing last, charged with at­tempt­ing to mur­der Clin­ton McCor­mack.

Dressed in navy sweat­shirt and track­suit bot­toms, he stood and pleaded guilty to car­ry­ing out the of­fence on April 8, 2016, at Old Court Park in Bray.

Michael O’Hig­gins SC, de­fend­ing, asked the court for time to ob­tain a psy­cho­log­i­cal re­port for his client. He also asked for a gov­er­nor’s re­port.

Mr Jus­tice Patrick McCarthy re­manded O’Con­nell in cus­tody un­til Jan­uary 29 next and di­rected the prepa­ra­tion of a vic­tim im­pact re­port.
