During lunchtime yesterday, Gardaí responded to reports of an armed robbery at a Paddy Power outlet on the South Circular Road in Rialto.

In court today, Detective Garda Mark Melbourne said it would be alleged that €1,835 was stolen.

He told Judge John Coughlan that he arrested the accused Noel Reddington at New Ireland Road at 1.15pm yesterday afternoon

The 29-year-old is facing two charges – robbery and possession of a firearm with criminal intent.

When Judge Coughlan asked if the gun was loaded, Detective Melbourne said it was.

He also indicated there would be an objection to bail, but Mr Reddington’s solicitor said they were not making an application at this stage so he was remanded in custody by consent and is due to appear before Cloverhill District Court next Friday.

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked. It was a challenging time for everyone and the uncertainty around what I should have been doing as a teacher made it harder.Diary of an Irish teacher: I want to get back to work.
