Mr McKevitt is accused of the murder of 19-year-old Conor O'Brien in Enfield, county Meath, whose body was found outside a house last Friday.

Detective Sgt Lee Gavin of Trim Garda Station said Mr McKevitt made no reply under caution.

The 50-year-old was also charged with five further offences arising from an incident at a hotel in Carlow last Tuesday evening.

These include the unlawful possession of a 9mm semi-automatic pistol, six rounds of ammunition and a knife.

Detective Garda Ian Roche from Carlow Garda Station told the court Mr McKevitt also made no reply when those charges were put to him.

An application for free legal aid was granted by Judge Geraldine Carthy.

He will appear before Cloverhill District court next Friday, September 10th.
