Four men have appeared in court charged with the assault and false imprisonment of Kevin Lunney.

The men range in age from 25 to 66 and have addresses in Dublin and Cavan.

66-year-old Luke O'Reilly - of Mullahoran Lower, Kilcogy in Co Cavan - 38-year-old Alan O'Brien of Shelmalier Road, East Wall in Dublin, 25-year-old Darren Redmond of Calendon Road, East Wall also Dublin and a fourth man aged 38 were arrested by Gardaí last week.

The men covered their faces using their hands and items of clothing as they were escorted into Virgina District Court on Tuesday morning.

All four have been charged with the assault and false imprisonment of Kevin Lunney.

Mr O'Reilly and the 38-year-old man, who cannot be named due to reporting restrictions, were remanded in custody after no bail applications were made.

Two bail applications were made on behalf of Mr O'Brien and Mr Redmond, which were objected to by Gardaí on a number of grounds including concerns over evidence and potential witness intimidation.

Judge Denis McLoughlin refused both men bail.

All four have been remanded to Castlerea Prison.
