A 30-YEAR-OLD man accused of attacking and injuring another man at his apartment in Dublin has been remanded in custody.

Celyn Eadon of Annaly Grove, Ongar, Dublin 15, was charged with assault causing harm at his home address on Friday.

Gardai arrested him that evening.

He was charged at Blanchardstown station and held overnight pending his appearance before Judge Bryan Smyth at Dublin District Court on Saturday.

Garda Simon Cadam told the court there would be an objection to bail, due to the seriousness of the case.

Garda Cadam said Mr Eadon "made no reply" when charged.

Judge Smyth noted from defence solicitor Brian Keenan that the accused was not making a bail application at this stage.

He remanded him in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court via video-link on Friday.

Gardai are to seek directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Mr Keenan said that his client, who has not yet pleaded, had "a history of psychiatric illness and is currently on prescribed medication".

Judge Smyth granted the solicitor's request to recommend medical attention for Mr Eadon in custody.

After hearing that the accused had no assets and received the disability benefit, he also allowed legal aid.

Dressed in a white T-shirt, green trousers and runners, Mr Eadon remained silent during the hearing.
