May 11, 2020

A man has been remanded in custody on suspicion of the attempted burglary of a house in Raphoe last night.

Darius McAteer appeared at Letterkenny District Court today after being arrested by Gardai at Townspark, Raphoe around 11.30pm.

It followed reports of a person trying to break into a home.

Garda Grainne McLoone gave evidence of arresting McAteer and charging him at Letterkenny Garda station.

She said McAteer, who is originally from Stranorlar, made no reply when the charges were put to him.

She objected to bail saying that the accused was already on bail for similar charges when arrested.

Solicitor Frank Dorian said he would not be contesting the objection to bail.

McAteer was remanded in custody to appear again on Monday next.
