Airside manslaughter charge
A man has been charged with manslaughter following the death of a Drogheda man following an alleged incident outside an Airside nightclub.
Daniel Fitzgerald from Whitestown Avenue in Blanchardstown was arrested last week and questioned at Swords Garda Station and following directions from the DPP, he was charged with the unlawful killing of Christopher Fitzgerald at Airside Business Park on May 7.
Last Friday, he was remanded in custody with consent to bail at his second appearance in the Dublin District Court. At his first hearing, the court was told that when charged, the defendant said he was ‘so, so sorry’ and that he was ‘only trying to defend myself ’.
