High Court denies bail for five men

Five men have been denied bail in the High Court arising out of an incident where a man was assaulted and falsely imprisoned.

Aaron Donoghue (20 ), 5 The Green, Market Point; Thomas Donoghue (21 ), 88 Ardleigh Park; John Donoghue (31 ), 6 Ardilaun Green; Bernard Dunne (26 ) 28 Cathedral View; Colm Donoghue, Kelly’s Apartments, Barrack Street; and Joe Donoghue 28 Cathedral View were charged last month with assaulting James Rattigan at Ardilaun Green on January 14, causing him harm.

Dunne, and Aaron and Thomas Donoghue are also charged with falsely imprisoning Mr Rattigan between January 13 and 14 at the same location.

All requested bail when they first appeared before Mullingar District Court but this was refused by Judge John Neilan who heard evidence from Garda Robert Feery under the Bail Act and all were remanded in custody.

Judge William Early extended that remand when they appeared before him on February 4, at the request of Inspector Kieran Keyes, who said a file was ready to go to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

When the men appeared at the High Court sitting at Cloverhill on Monday, only Bernard Dunne was granted bail.

The rest remain in custody.

All are to appear before Mullingar District Court again on February 18.
