Dundalk man accused of punching woman in face at bookmakers

Dundalk courthouse

A 45-year-old man accused of punching a female member of staff in the face in a Dundalk bookmakers, is to have his case dealt with in the Circuit Court.

Patrick Murphy of Lisheen Park, Knockbridge is charged with assault causing harm, trespass and causing criminal damage to a door to the ‘staff-only’ area at Bar One Racing, Park Street, Dundalk on July ninth last.

The State had directed summary disposal in the case, which means it would be heard at district court level. However, in Dundalk district court last Wednesday after speaking to the complainant in the case, Judge John Coughlan refused jurisdiction and adjourned the case until the ninth of January for preparation of book of evidence.
