A 61-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the burning of a Luas tram during the Dublin riots last November.
John Tate, of Iveagh Trust, Kevin Street in Dublin, is accused of two counts of arson, two violent disorder incidents, and obstructing traffic at Parnell Street and O’Connell Street on 23 November.
He was brought before Dublin District Court this evening where gardaí objected to bail due to what they described as the seriousness of the case.
Judge Stephanie Coggins set bail at €5,000 with strict conditions not to attend demonstrations, obey a curfew and “no online activity”.
Mr Tate was remanded in custody with consent to bail to appear in court again next Tuesday.
