Two Dublin men have appeared in court on charges of attempted murder of a man following a shooting in the capital earlier this year.

Obert Redmond, 32, and Bernard Fogarty, 34, were both taken into custody after being brought before the Dublin District Court this afternoon.

They were arrested over the weekend after an investigation into a shooting near Dublin Airport last January that injured two men.

This afternoon, Detective Gardaí Warren O’Sullivan and Michael McGuinness gave indications of the arrest, indictment and caution of both defendants.

The defendants are charged with the attempted murder of Barry Wolverson on Killeek Lane, St. Margaret’s, Swords, on January 17th.

They are also charged with assault causing harm to Gerard Wildman in the same location on the same day.

Robert Redmond of Woodview Close, Donaghmede and Bernard Fogarty, with an address in Kilmore, are also charged with alleged possession of a firearm and ammunition in the same incident last January.

No bail was requested on behalf of Mr Fogarty and he was detained.

The district court cannot examine a bail motion in an attempted murder, but a motion has been filed on behalf of Mr. Redmond in relation to the other charges.

Det Gda Michael McGuinness declined bail on a number of reasons, including the gravity of the charge.

He told the court that evidence obtained during the investigation included video surveillance, clothing and testimony.

Det Gda McGuinness was asked by the defendant’s attorney if there were any conditions that could allay his concerns and said they were not.

Two other charges were brought against Mr Redmond this afternoon over an alleged incident in Dublin last year.

He is accused of soliciting threatened money from a man outside the applicant’s business on September 26, 2019 under Section 17 of the Criminal Justice (Public Order) Act.

Robert Redmond is also charged with criminal harm.

Det Gda Michael McCallion declined bail, pointing to the gravity of the charge and the probable 14 year monetary threat conviction.

The court heard that the man was allegedly approached by two men and said, “Your gaf will be burned down with you and your moth in it,” while texts and phone calls were also involved.

The detective said that CCTV had been collected from the area and that Robert Redmond had been identified as a passenger in a vehicle approaching the complainant.

He said Mr Redmond visited the Garda station to make a voluntary statement and identified himself on video surveillance but made no threats.

Det Gda McCallion agreed with Robert Redmond’s attorney that the applicant was not in court to testify and therefore hearsay was given.

He also said there would not be any bail conditions that would allay his concerns.

The presiding judge said the defendant enjoyed the presumption of innocence but, after examining the evidence in front of her, denied the application for bail.

Robert Redmond was taken into custody to appear again in Cloverhill District Court Thursday.
