A YOUNG man who "mooned" anti-lockdown protesters in Dublin's Garden of Remembrance and assaulted a garda has had his case further adjourned for a probation report.

Jarid Kenny (19) "flashed the crowd with his rear" in the incident at a May Day demonstration and swung his arms, injuring a garda, as he was taken into custody.

Kenny, of Stanaway Avenue, Crumlin, pleaded guilty to public order charges including trespassing, using threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour and assaulting a garda on May 1 last year.

The case was heard last November and came back before Judge Bryan Smyth at Dublin District Court for a pre-sanction probation report.

The judge was told the report was not ready and adjourned the case to a date in April.

Previously, the court heard gardaí were policing anti-lockdown protests when they saw the accused standing on a plinth in the Garden of Remembrance, having flashed the crowd with his rear.

Kenny used foul language to gardaí, scaled a wall at the Rotunda maternity hospital and assaulted an officer as he was being arrested at Parnell Square. The garda was left with swelling on his cheek.
