TWO men facing assault charges from incidents in Ballydehob over the August bank holiday weekend have been told to stay out of licensed premises as part of their bail conditions.

Michael Delaney of Halting site, Reenrour, Bantry  appeared at Clonakilty District Court last week where he was charged with the assault of Anita Barry and Peter Duggan on Main Street, Ballydehob on August 4th last. John Delaney of The Pier, Bantry was charged with assaulting Peter Duggan on the same date.

Sgt Trish O’Sullivan told Judge John King that no directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions have been received yet and she said that further charges are under consideration. Judge King granted Michael Delaney bail on his own bond of €100 with no cash required but attached certain conditions to his bail, including that the accused be of sober habits and stay out of licensed premises and that he observe a daily curfew from 11pm to 7am. 

Judge King also directed Mr Delaney to refrain from making contact with the alleged injured parties or their families by any means including social media. He must also sign on at Bantry Garda Station three times a week on  Monday, Wednesday and Saturday between 9am and 5pm.

Mr Delaney must also furnish his mobile number to gardaí and keep his phone charged and with credit and have it on him at all time and answer calls from gardaí at all times.

Gda Anthony Roche gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution of John Delaney and told the court that they are waiting on directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions on this matter.

Judge King granted John Delaney bail in his own bond of €100 with no cash required and he attached the same conditions to his bail bond as he did with Michael Delaney

Both men were remanded on continuing bail to appear at Bantry District court on September 26th.
