Three men to appear in court after alleged courthouse brawl
Three men are set to appear at a special sitting of Sligo District Court tonight after allegedly taking part in a fight that broke out in the courthouse foyer yesterday.
Tony Murrin, John Dennedy and Dylan Clarke were arrested by gardaí in Sligo Court House and subsequently charged with threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour.
Gardaí were alerted to the courthouse disturbance after overhearing the screams of women who witnessed the alleged fight, the Irish Independent reports.
A fourth man, who is a minor, is being dealt with separately.
News of the disturbance comes a day after reports of two men being stabbed in the foyer of Galway Court House.
