A 49-year-old man has appeared in court in relation to an incident where a truck reversed through the gates of the Russian embassy in Dublin.
It happened on Orwell Road on Monday at around 1:30pm.
Desmond Wisley - of Tully, Ballinamore, Co Leitrim - appeared before Tallaght District Court on Tuesday charged with criminal damage and dangerous driving.
He was granted bail on a number of conditions - including that he stay away from the Orwell Road in Dublin 14, and that he have no direct or indirect contact with any staff member of the Russian embassy.
He will appear before Tallaght District Court again on April 26th.
In the hours after the incident, the embassy accused Gardaí of ‘standing idle’ while it happened.
Gardaí have since erected security barriers around the property.
