A 20-year-old Emyvale woman was taken to a Dublin hospital for treatment to injuries sustained in an incident in Monaghan Town on Sunday night when a petrol bomb was thrown at a licensed premises.
The woman was standing outside Master Deery’s licensed premises in Park Street in the town when the incident occurred.
She suffered burns to her hair, back and ear, and after being brought to Cavan General Hospital was transferred to St James’ Hospital in Dublin for treatment for second-degree burns.
A man in his fifties appeared at Monaghan District Court on Monday on charges alleging involvement in the incident.
Andrew McKenna from 39 Tully, Monaghan was remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Friday, June 1 for further directions in the matter from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The accused man was brought from custody at Monaghan Garda Station to attend the brief hearing, during which Garda Inspector Pat McMorrow indicated that the Gardai would be objecting to bail in view of the seriousness of the alleged offence.
Mr Shane Kennedy, solicitor, told the court that Mr McKenna did not wish to make an application at this moment in time for bail.
Judge Sean MacBride said these were very serious charges, and he would grant the accused man free legal aid and assign Mr Kennedy to the case. He asked Mr Kennedy if he required any order for a medical examination of his client.
Mr Kennedy said he felt his client did need a medical doctor to speak to him.
Judge MacBride directed that the accused receive a general medical examination and remanded him in custody as stated.
