Men get bail provided they stay away from publican

THREE men have been charged with making a demand with menaces to a Dublin publican to stop trading “within 24 hours”.

Alan Ryan, aged 30, of Grange Abbey Drive, Donaghmede, Daryl Mulcahy, aged 20, with an address at Matt Talbot Court and Derek Nolan, aged 29, from Seacliff Road, in Baldoyle, were charged under Section 17 of the Public Order Act for making a demand with menaces, on March 13 last, to Shane Simpson, former leaseholder of the Castle public house, in Summerhill.

Their charges also state that this was to “gain for yourself or another” or “to cause loss to another made an unwarranted demand, to cease trading in the Castle Public House and close within 24 hours”.

Judge McHugh granted bail and ordered them to stay away from Shane Simpson as well as his brother Stephen Simpson “and staff from the Castle pub”, not to associate with each other and sign on daily at their local garda stations.
