A woman accused of dangerous driving causing the death of a motorcyclist on the M50 has been sent for trial.

Sandra Kavanagh (46) was served with the book of evidence when she appeared on bail before Blanchardstown District Court.

The accused, with an address at Leigh Valley, Ratoath, Co Meath, is charged with dangerous driving causing the death of a male motorcyclist.

The incident allegedly took place at the M50 Junction 5 Finglas shortly before 8am on November 19, 2019.

The 29-year-old biker was taken to James Connolly Hospital where he later died.

A State solicitor told Blanchardstown court that the book of evidence was ready and had been served on the accused.

The Director of Public Prosecutions was consenting to Ms Kavanagh being sent forward to the next sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Judge John King gave Ms Kavanagh the formal caution that she had 14 days to provide any alibi details to the prosecution.

The judge also ordered that a videocopy of an interview which gardaí conducted with the accused be furnished to her legal team.

Defence solicitor Damien Coffey said there was no application for free legal aid.

The accused has not yet indicated a plea to the charge, which is under the Road Traffic Act.

She was sent forward on bail to appear in the circuit court on a later date.
