Man denies he is a flight risk

Gardai are still preparing the book of evidence against a man who was arrested back in June after a series of Garda raids across the city.

The 35 year old, Aidan Radmall from the Old Cratloe Road in Limerick was charged with possession of two pistols, a sub-machine gun and a stun gun for an unlawful purpose and also charges relating to the possession of Heroin to supply at Cecil Street on June 29th.

In total Mr. Radmall is facing a total of 11 separate charges, five drugs related and six relate to possession of ammunition and firearms.

At the latest court hearing Det Garda Ciara Dee alleged that the accused was "caught red handed and the nature of the evidence against him was overwhelming”.

The mans solicitor rebutted,

"He has six children, five from his marriage and one from his partner. They range in age from 16 years to three months. He has access to the children and is heavily involved with them. If he were to leave, he would be turning his back on his six children. He is also on social welfare and has no means to leave the country,”

Judge Tom O’Donnell did refuse bail and the case was adjourned until August 9.
