A WEST Cork man who has been charged with rape has consented to being held in custody until the case comes before Bandon District Court on November 7th.

It is alleged that the offence took place in a West Cork coastal town in July of this year, but details of the allegation cannot be revealed by order of the court. 

The solicitor acting for the accused told Judge James McNulty that there is a bail application currently before the High Court.

The accused man had come before a sitting of Macroom District Court last week but he was refused bail and was remanded to appear before Skibbereen District Court on Tuesday.
