29-year-old Gerard Lynch, with an address at Main Street, Pallaskenry is charged with the murder of 35-year-old Willie Lynch on December 30th last.

Mr O'Donnell asked Judge Mary Larkin that his client be given all medical assistance required while in custody.

Judge Larkin remanded the accused in custody, to appear before Limerick District Court on January 9th.
