A 23 year old Kilrush man has appeared before a special sitting of Ennis District Court, charged in connection with an assault incident in the town.

Mitchell Walsh of 20 St. Patrick’s Terrace, Kilrush has been charged with four offences arising out of the incident which occurred at Henry Street early on Saturday evening.


At this morning’s brief sitting, Garda Noel Barry told the court that Mitchell Walsh replied “no one puts their hands on my father” when he was told details of the charges he is facing arising out of Saturday’s incident.

At around 5:30 p.m., a man received non-life threatening injuries during an alleged altercation on Henry Street in Kilrush, and the court heard that Mitchell Walsh was arrested a short time later at nearby Burton Street.

He’s facing four charges – two of criminal damage, one relating to the possession of a weapon and another of assault causing harm.

There was no application for bail at today’s hearing.

Mr. Walsh was remanded in custody by Judge Marie Keane, and will appear before the court again via videolink on Wednesday.
