14 counts of criminal damage in Cork city

Gardaí arrested a man and charged him with 14 counts of causing criminal damage to parked cars and business premises in the Union Quay area of Cork in the early hours of yesterday.

Garda Brian Maher arrested David Horgan, aged 26, of 10A Haig Gardens, Boreenmanna Rd, Cork, and brought him before Cork District Court yesterday afternoon.

Horgan was charged with 14 offences, five of causing criminal damage to parked cars, and nine of damaging business premises, including Latitude bar and restaurant, the newly redesigned El Fenix pub, Donegans solicitors, and one property that was not on Union Quay — Mary Dorgan solicitors on South Mall.

Insp Eileen Foster said there was no Garda objection to the accused being remanded on bail, but on certain conditions.

Those bail conditions included daily signing at Angelsea St Garda Station, being home between 9pm and 7am every night, being of sober habits, and staying out of the city centre except for medical or legal appointments.

Mr Horgan indicated that he was on his way directly to Cork University Hospital for medical treatment and asked about the bail conditions if he was to be hospitalised.

Judge Leo Malone explained that the conditions would be suspended if he was in hospital.

The judge acceded to Insp Foster’s application to adjourn the case to Jan 22 with the accused on bail.
