A 24-year-old local man has been charged with assault causing harm to a man at St. Stephen’s Park, Castleisland in the early morning of Sunday, January 14th.

Before Tralee District Court on Wednesday was Sean Lane, An Caislean Mor, Castleisland.

He was also charged with producing a baseball bat in the course of the assault on 27 year old Eamon Sheehy early on Sunday morning.

Refused Bail

Judge David Waters refused bail and remanded Lane in custody to appear again at Tralee District Court on Wednesday, January 24th.

A second man arrested in connection with the same assault has been released without charge and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Fight for Life

Meanwhile, as Eamon Sheehy continues to fight for his life at Cork University Hospital there was a glimmer of light as the week progressed.

From the news that he was critically ill at the weekend came the more hopeful news by mid-week that his condition had stabilised.
