'no reply' Man charged with possession of gun and ammo after shooting of Andy O'Brien remanded
Archibald was arrested by gardai on Monday on the Commons Road, Clondalkin
A MAN charged over a revolver and ammunition seizure following a shooting in Dublin has been remanded in custody.
Andy O'Brien (28) was hospitalised with non-life-threatening injuries after a gunshot at about 5 pm on April 8 in Cherrywood Grove, Clondalkin.
He was taken to Tallaght Hospital.
On Monday afternoon, gardai arrested Sam Archibald, 35, of Commons Road, Clondalkin.
He was detained at a local station under section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act, 2007.
Mr Archibald was charged with two offences under the Firearms Act just after 10 pm on Friday.
Gardai then held him pending his appearance before Judge John King at Dublin District Court on Saturday. Detective Garda Sergeant Dara Kenny told the court the accused "made no reply" to the charges.
He is accused of possessing a .38 calibre revolver on April 8 with intent to endanger life at Cherrywood Grove.
He is also charged with having 31 rounds of various calibre ammunition and nine shotgun cartridges at another address in Clondalkin between April 8 and Monday last.
Defence solicitor Stephan O'Mahony told Judge King he had received a copy of the garda's objection to bail. However, he added that his client was deferring his bail application.
Judge King remanded him in custody to appear via video link at Cloverhill District Court on Thursday, pending directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
He also acceded to a defence request to direct medical attention for the accused in custody.
Mr Archibald, who did not address the court, has not yet indicated how he will plead.
His solicitor applied for legal aid telling the court his client had worked previously, but he added that Detective Sergeant Kenny accepted Mr Archibald was "not a man of means".
The Judge granted it after noting from the investigation officer that the accused was entitled to legal aid. Judge King also said the man would be medically assessed when he goes into custody.
