A 34-YEAR-OLD man who was charged with the mur­der of Dun­dalk mum Irene White will ap­pear in court again at Clover­hill on Fri­day.

An­thony Lambe, An­nadrum­man, Castle­blayney, was brought be­fore a spe­cial sit­ting of Dun­dalk Dis­trict Court on Satur­day af­ter­noon. There was a crowd of peo­ple shout­ing at him as he was led up the steps of the Crowe Street en­trance of the build­ing at 2pm by De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Pat Marry and De­tec­tive Mick Sheri­dan.

Hold­ing a bot­tle of wa­ter and wear­ing a red fleece, the de­fen­dant didn’t speak dur­ing the two minute hear­ing be­fore Judge De­nis McLough­lin.

DI Marry gave ev­i­dence of ar­rest­ing Lambe at 11.49am that day. He was for­mally charged at 1.30pm on Satur­day with the mur­der of Irene White at Ice House, Demesne Road, Dun­dalk on April 6, 2005. In re­ply to the charge af­ter cau­tion, the de­fen­dant said: ‘I’m very sorry’.

In­spec­tor Martin Beggy ap­plied for Lambe to be re­manded in cus­tody to Clover­hill on Fri­day Jan­uary 27. Judge McLough­lin noted that ‘ bail is not an op­tion for the dis­trict court’.

Lambe’s solic­i­tor, from Sea­mus Mal­lon Solic­i­tors, Castle­blayney, asked for the court to rec­om­mend that his client be placed in pro­tec­tive cus­tody. In ad­di­tion, the solic­i­tor ap­plied for, and was granted, le­gal aid, af­ter telling the judge the de­fen­dant is a stu­dent.

DI Marry said Lambe ‘may be a vul­ner­a­ble per­son at this stage’. Judge McLough­lin said he couldn’t or­der, but could only rec­om­mend, pro­tec­tive cus­tody. The ac­cused was re­manded in cus­tody to Clover­hill Dis­trict Court.
