Allegedly assaulted four men and smashed up Rosenallis pub

A 38-year-old man has been charged with assaulting four men, damaging two cars and extensively damaging a pub in Rosenallis.

Justin McEvoy (38), Spiddal, Co. Galway, was charged with four counts of assault, and three counts of criminal damage, on May 21, 2017.

Sgt JJ Kirby gave evidence that the accused was drinking in a pub in Rosenallis on the night and was given a lift home by the barman and another man.

It is alleged that when they arrived, the accused turned on the barman and punched him. It is further alleged that when the other man went to help, the accused then assaulted him.

A third man came on the scene and he too was allegedly assaulted, and a fourth man was also allegedly assaulted by the accused.

Two men’s vehicles were allegedly damaged at the scene by the accused, with €100 damage caused to each vehicle.

Later that night, it is alleged the accused went back to the pub and caused extensive damage to the property. Sgt Kirby said this was caught on CCTV.

The accused had previous convictions.

Sgt Kirby said that the injured party from the pub was willing to make a victim impact statement or come to court, but he was unsure about the other injured parties.

Judge Catherine Staines said she needed to see victim impact statements before finalising and the matter was put back to March 8.
