A man has appeared at Dungloe District Court charged with having almost €25,000 worth of cannabis for sale or supply in Brinaleck, Derrybeg.

Alan Lynch (35), from Park, Brinaleck is charged with having the drugs for sale or supply at Park, Brinaleck on August 12 last year.

He is also charged that he engaged in the handling of property, the proceeds of criminal conduct to wit, €15,530 and £10 stg while knowing or being reckless as to whether or not the said property was the proceeds of criminal conduct on the same date and at the same location.

The defendant is also charged with having cannabis for sale or supply and possession of cannabis on the same date and at the same location.

Garda Patrick Kelly gave evidence of the arrest charge and caution of the defendant, at today’s district court in Dungloe.

The defendant, who appeared in court, made no reply to the charges.

The garda said there was no objection to bail with certain conditions.

He asked for the defendant to be remanded on bail until June 8th for the service of a book of evidence.

The defendant was released on condition that he signs on once a fortnight at Bunbeg Garda Station every second Saturday starting from next Saturday, May 15.

He was also to surrender his passport and not apply for a new one.

Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client was working in Dublin.

The solicitor applied for legal aid “given the enormity of the charges.”

Judge Alan Mitchell asked for the street value of the alleged amount, of drugs and was told it came to €24,940.

The defendant was remanded on bail until June 8 for service of the book of evidence.
