A Portarlington man who keeps coming to the attention of the gardaí has been told to keep out of Portlaoise town.

Defence, Mr Philip Meagher said that the accused used to live in Kilminchy and still has a lot of friends there. Defence asked that the exclusion limit be set around the Kilminchy area.

Bail was granted, with conditions that the accused stay out of Main Street and all public houses in the town.
