Man accused of criminal damage to George bar further remanded in custody

Eoin Berkeley, 24, from Hamptonwood Way, Finglas, Dublin 11 has not yet indicated how he will plead.

He is accused of criminal damage to the facade and panels at the George Bar in the city-centre in the early hours of May 20 last.

He appeared at a district court in Dublin on Friday when he was further remanded in custody to appear again on a date in October.

Judge Victor Blake was told gardai have completed the case file and it is currently with the DPP.

The accused did not address the court during the hearing on Friday and has not yet indicated how he will plead.

Derogatory language and a swastika daubed in chalk had to be removed from the pub’s facade. Earlier in the proceedings, the district court had heard that there was a possibility of further charges.

Free legal aid was also granted earlier after the defence explained to the court that Mr Berkeley's access to funds was limited.
