Man before Dundalk court accused of rape at a location in Louth

A 42 year old man has appeared before Dundalk District Court accused of rape.

The defendant, who can't be named due to reporting restrictions, is charged with committing the alleged offence at a location in County Louth on February 21st last.

He is further accused of producing a metal hoover pole in the course of a dispute.

After hearing the defendant made no reply when the charge was put to him after caution, and the Defence would not be applying for bail at this point, Judge Eirinn McKiernan remanded him in custody to Drogheda District Court on Monday.

At the request of the Defence, the judge also directed that the accused receive medical treatment on his arrival at Cloverhill prison.
