Two young men charged with attacking Alanna Quinn Idris and a teenage boy in Dublin late last year have been handed extra charges.
The then 17-year-old girl was left with a shattered tooth, broken cheekbones and a ruptured eyeball after the assault at the Civic Centre, Ballyfermot, on the night of December 30th.
Alanna, who is now 18, underwent several operations to fix her eye socket and lost her sight in the injured eye.
In January, Darragh Lyons and co-accused Jack Cummins appeared at Dublin District Court and were granted bail subject to strict conditions.
18-year-old Darragh Lyons of Weir View, Glenaulin, Chapelizod, Dublin 20, was accused of assault causing harm to Alanna Quinn Idris.
18-year-old Jack Cummins of Rossmore Road, Ballyfermot, Dublin, was charged with assault causing harm to a teenage boy.
They appeared again at Dublin District Court today for directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Each youth was further charged with violent disorder in connection with the incident.
Meanwhile, Mr Lyons was accused of a second count of assault causing harm to Alanna Quinn Idris.
Judge Paula Murphy heard they “made no reply” to the new charges.
She also noted the DPP directed trial on indictment – meaning the case is to go forward for trial before a judge and jury in the Circuit Court, which has broader sentencing powers.
Neither man has indicated how they will plead.
