Ballina pensioner sent forward for trial for unlawful killing

The book of evidence was served on John Vincent Sweeney, 15 Circular Road, Ballina, before Ballina District Court sitting on Tuesday, with the defendant now sent forward for trial to Castlebar Circuit Court sitting on April 21, for an unlawful killing and criminal damage charge.

Inspector Martin Byrne did not object to bail for the defendant on the condition that Sweeny signs on twice a week at Ballina Garda station, gives a sworn undertaking not to apply for a passport, and resides at his present rented accommodation on Circular Road.

Judge Mary Devins granted legal aid to the defendant’s solicitor John Gordon, for one junior and senior counsel.
