A 32-year-old man accused of an arson attack outside Dundalk Garda Station is to have his case dealt in the Circuit Court.

Jason Corr who had an address at the time at Glengat B & B, Stapleton Place, Dundalk, was last week charged with one count of arson - causing criminal damage by fire to two garda vehicles on August 18th last.

Garda Padraig Kelly told the local district court that the defendant made no reply when the charge was put to him after caution and added that he was applying to the court for the accused to be remanded in custody.

Court presenter Sgt. Laura Blanch said she had directions for the charge already before the court – of criminal damage to be withdrawn and the DPP had directed prosecution on indictment.

Judge Eirinn McKiernan further remanded Mr. Corr in custody to appear by videolink on November 24th.
