Hearing date put back at Tullamore court due to arson attack on defendant's mother's home

Hearing date put back

A date has been set for a hearing in the case of a man charged with threatening the home of another man.

On May 16, Dean Guinan (24) 35, St Cormack's Park, Kilcormac, is alleged to have threatened another man intending that the man would fear the threat would be carried out to damage his home. Mr Guinan is also accused of engaging in threatening and abusive behaviour.

At last week's district court sitting Judge Staines adjourned the case to December 8, 2021.
