The Director of Public Prosecutions has decided to try a Dublin-based criminal solicitor before a judge and jury at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Cahir O’Higgins, whose firm is based on Parkgate Street in Dublin city, is accused of assault causing harm to another well-known criminal lawyer.

The offices of Cahir O’Higgins & Co. Solicitors are just a short walk from the Criminal Courts of Justice, where he first appeared on this charge in February.

The 46-year-old is accused of assault causing harm to Stephen O’Mahony, at Wolfe Tone Quay in Dublin city centre, on February 11th.

Mr O’Mahony worked at Mr O’Higgins’ firm for a number of years before he left to set up his own practice last year.

Mr O’Higgins is on bail, and therefore was not required to attend in person today due to measures taken to restrict numbers in court during the pandemic.

The DPP has decided to try the case on indictment, which means it will be dealt with before a judge and jury at the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Mr O’Higgins is due to be served with a book of evidence in June.
