Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

A MON­AGEER man ap­peared be­fore the District Court last week charged with as­sault caus­ing harm on a night out in Tem­ple­shan­non. Eu­gene Bres­lin (37) of Bal­ly­daw­more, Mon­ageer, was charged with as­sault­ing Sea­mus Mur­phy caus­ing him harm at Treacy’s Ho­tel.

In out­lin­ing the al­leged facts of the case, Garda Ray­mond Moore said that gar­daí re­sponded to re­ports of an as­sault at 3.30 a.m. He said that at the scene, they met with Mr Mur­phy who said that he was the vic­tim of an un­pro­voked at­tack. It is al­leged that Bres­lin put his arm around Mr Mur­phy’s neck and pulled him to the floor and punched him in the face. Garda Moore said that the in­jured party suf­fered dizzi­ness and pain and was left un­able to fully re­call the in­ci­dent.

Judge Haughton ac­cepted ju­ris­dic­tion in the case and it was ad­journed un­til June 6 to al­low Bres­lin’s solic­i­tor to be fur­nished with the ev­i­dence in the case.
