Man charged in connection with shooting incident at Banteer pub

A man in his 30s has been charged in connection with a shooting incident in which a man was injured in a Co Cork pub over the public holiday weekend.

Charles O’Callaghan, aged 30, of Killavoy, Banteer, Co Cork, appeared before a special sitting of Mallow District Court on Saturday evening.

He was charged with two offences arising out of the shooting incident at the White Country Inn in Banteer in North Cork at around 8pm on August 3.

He was accused of assault, causing harm to Mark Kelly, aged 35, at the White Country Inn, contrary to section 3 of the Non Fatal Offences Against the Person Act.

Mr O’Callaghan was further charged with producing a weapon capable of causing serious injury in the course of a dispute.

Sergeant James O’Shea said gardaí had no objections to O’Callaghan being released on bail provided the accused agreed to abide by bail conditions set out by the courts.

He said gardaí were continuing to investigate the incident with a view to preparing a full file on the matter for the DPP.

Free legal aid was granted. Judge Tim Lucey remanded Mr O’Callaghan on his own bail of €250 to appear at Mallow District Court again on September 9 and ordered him to abide by six bail conditions.

He has to reside at his home address; sign on three times weekly at Mallow Garda Station and observe a 9pm to 7am curfew.

He is also forbidden from seeing the injured party. He cannot enter the pub where the offence occurred and has to notify gardaí if he is admitted to any medical institution.
