A young man accused of laundering €2,235 in cash, which was the alleged proceeds of crime, has been sent for trial.

Lorcan Connaghan (20) appeared on bail before Blanchardstown District Court.

The accused, with an address at Mellowes Road in Finglas, is charged with laundering €2,235 in cash, which was the alleged proceeds of crime.

The offence allegedly took place at Cardiffsbridge Road in Finglas on July 5, 2021.

Mr Connaghan faces trial by judge and jury in the circuit court after the matter was deemed to be too serious for the district court.

A State solicitor said that the book of evidence was ready and had been served on the accused, who goes forward to the present sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Judge David McHugh gave Mr Connaghan the formal alibi caution.

Defence solicitor Simon Fleming and one junior counsel were assigned on free legal aid.

Judge McHugh also ordered that a video copy of an interview which gardaí conducted with the accused be furnished to his legal team.

The accused has not yet indicated a plea to the charge.
