Woman further remanded in connection with withholding information from Gareth Hutch murder probe

A 43-year-old woman, who is accused of withholding information from Gardaí investigating last month's gang murder of Gareth Hutch in Dublin, has been further remanded in custody.

Father-of-one Gareth Hutch, aged 35, a nephew of Gerry “the Monk” Hutch, was shot dead as he was getting into his car outside Avondale House flats, where he lived, on North Cumberland Street in inner city Dublin, on the morning of May 24.

Mary McDonnell with an address at Avondale House, North Cumberland Street is charged with failing without reasonable excuse to disclose information to the Gardaí, as soon as was practicable, information she knew or believed might be of material assistance in securing the apprehension, prosecution or conviction of any other person for a serious offence.

The charge is under Section 9 of the Offences Against the State Act and the offence is alleged to have happened at an address at Avondale House on May 24 last.

She faced her second hearing at Dublin District Court today when she was further remanded in custody to appear again next week. There was no bail application.

At her first hearing, on May 31, Garda Sgt Enda O'Sullivan told the woman, who has been granted legal aid, “made no reply to the charge after caution”

A second man is also before the court on a charge connected to Mr Hutch's death. Last week, Thomas Fox, who has an address at Rutland Court, in north inner city Dublin, was charged with unlawful possession of a Makarov 9mm handgun at Avondale House on May 23, a day before the shooting.

The charge is contrary to section 27A of the Firearms Act which can carry a sentence of up to 14 years. Neither defendant has indicated how they will plead.
