Bench warrant issued over fight in Dundalk estate

Bench warrant issued over fight in Dundalk estate

Dillon McCague with an address at Marian Park, Dundalk was charged with two public order offences arising out of the incident at Castleross, shortly before 7.30pm on June 17th last – including using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour.
