3 CO. WEXFORD MEN BEFORE COURT AFTER TWO PATROL CARS RAMMED
Three County Wexford men are due in court again next week after a high speed chase over the weekend saw two Garda patrol cars being rammed and three gardaí sustaining injuries.
The men – who are in their 20s – appeared before Kilkenny District Court yesterday.
20 year-old Timmy Curry from Grange, Kilcormac in Ferns was yesterday charged with criminal damage after it’s alleged he rammed into a Garda car at Myshall, Co Carlow and on St Joseph’s Road in Carlow town on Saturday night.
He was also charged with having drugs in his possession for personal use and for sale and supply to others.
The two other men – Alan Carroll – who’s 24 and from Baile Eoghain in Gorey and 23 year-old Keith Kavanagh from Cois Doire in Gorey were charged with having drugs in their possession for personal use and for sale and supply to others.
Bail was granted on condition that the men sign on twice weekly at their local Garda stations and inform gardaí of any change in address. All three men were granted free legal aid.
Gardaí are awaiting directions from the DPP in relation to further charges.
They were remanded on bail and the case was adjourned to Carlow District Court on February 11th.
