Co-accused, Thomas Tully, with an address at 83 Star Court, John Carew Park, Limerick, was also before the court but his case was adjourned to Friday, February 27 for him to be arraigned.
Defence counsel for Byrne, Laurence Goucher (BL) requested that a probation report be prepared in the case of his client prior to sentence. Judge Keys acceded to this request and adjourned Byrne’s case to February 27 also.
Byrne was remanded on continuing bail to appear on that date.
