Man previously jailed for INLA membership admits making death threat

A Crumlin man pleaded guilty at the Special Criminal Court today to making a threat to kill a man at a popular Dublin night spot almost two years ago.

Gareth Dunne (aged 25) of Clonard Road in Crumlin pleaded guilty at the three judge-non jury court with threatening to kill a man at Clontarf’s Barcode nightclub in North Dublin on August 10, 2008.

Dunne's counsel Mr Diarmaid Mc Guinness SC told the court that his client wanted to apologise to the man who was the subject of the threat.

He also said that his client who had been jailed for INLA membership would give an undertaking to dissociate from illegal organisations.

In July last year, the Special Criminal Court jailed Dunne for four years after he pleaded guilty to INLA membership.

He was arrested in February 2008 after an INLA plot to a kidnap a Cork businessman was foiled by gardaí.

The court remanded Dunne in custody for sentencing on October 6 next.
