Two men appeared before Monaghan District Court on Monday following a fatal accident in which a 22-year-old man from Scotshouse lost his life on the concession road between Clones and Cavan on Saturday morning.
James Brady of Scotshouse Close, Scotshouse was tragically killed when the car in which he was a front seat passenger was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle at Clonoony, on the N54, shortly before 4am on Saturday morning.
It is understood that he was pronounced dead while being taken to Cavan General Hospital following the accident.
Mr Brady was laid to rest following removal and funeral Mass at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Scotshouse yesterday morning (Wednesday).
The 21-year old driver of the car in which Mr Brady was travelling escaped injury, but the 28-year-old driver and sole occupant of the other car was taken to hospital in Cavan with injuries that were not life-threatening.
The roadway was closed for a number of hours following the incident while gardai examined the scene, and they are calling on anyone who was on the roadway between 3am and 4am on Saturday, and who may have noticed anything, to contact them.
At Monaghan District Court on Monday, Jason McQuillan (21) of Derrygoash, Newtownbutler, Co Fermanagh was charged with driving while under the influence of an intoxicant at Clonoony, Clones on Saturday last, 15th September.
Jude Sean MacBride was told that an independent surety of €2,000 had been set in respect of this defendant at a hearing in Cavan later on Saturday, where he had been remanded on his own nominal bond of €750.
The independent surety was paid at Monday’s hearing in Monaghan by the defendant’s father, David McQuillan, of the same address in Newtownbutler.
Graham McCann (28) of Drumoy, Belturbet, Co Cavan was charged with refusing to provide a blood or urine specimen to gardai at Cavan General Hospital on Saturday last.
The defendant had been on station bail of €500, which was transferred to a new bond at Monday’s hearing.
Conditions for bail for the two men were that they were to surrender their passports to gardai in Monaghan, were not to apply for any travel documents or leave the jurisdiction (or the island of Ireland in the case of Mr McQuillan), were to reside at their addresses, and were to sign at garda stations three times per week.
Mr McQuillan, who was represented by George Wright, solr, was to reside with his parents at Derrygoash and sign at Monaghan Garda Station on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, while Mr McCann was to reside with his parents Desmond and Mary McCann at Drumoy, Belturbet, and sign at Ballyconnell Garda Station, also on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
Catherine McGuigan, solr, representing Mr McCann, said her client had recently come home from Australia and was getting money from his parents.
Both men were remanded on continuing bail to appear at Clones District Court on 9th November.
