A Clare man has been charged with endangering the life of a Limerick-based Garda in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
He has been remanded in custody after facing seven other charges.
The charges arise out of an alleged incident in which a Garda patrol vehicle was rammed during the pursuit of another car, leaving two Gardaí hospitalised with non-life threatening injuries.
23-year-old Evan Toomey - of Oak Park, Watery Road in Ennis - was charged with criminal damage to endanger the life of a Garda; criminal damage to a barrier of a toll plaza; criminal damage to a Garda patrol jeep; dangerous driving, and possession of a quantity of cannabis herb and heroin for sale or supply.
24-year-old Karl Haugh - with an address at Oakwood Drive in Ennis - also appeared in court in connection with the same incident.
He was charged with possession of cannabis herb and heroin for sale or supply, and with possession of a knife.
Mr Haugh was remanded on bail to next February.
Mr Toomey will appear in court again next Friday for a bail application.
