A woman accused of faking her own death appeared before the Dublin District Court on Saturday.
Mother of one Amy McCauley from Co Wexford faces seven charges, having allegedly registered her date of death as December 26th, 2022, and obtained death certificates in the Irish and English versions of her name.
She was arrested on Friday and detained at Pearse Street Garda Station before appearing at court.
Ms McCauley is accused of using a false death notification form in the name of Amy McAuley on January 19th, 2023, at Wexford County Council and in the name of Amy Nic Amhlaoibh at the Civil Registration Service at Mill Yard Lane, in Enniscorthy on February 23rd of this year.
Arresting officer Detective Garda Des Rogers said she posed as her sister to file the death certificates.
She is accused of one theft and six offences for using false instruments to induce another person to accept the death notifications as genuine.
Ms McCauley also allegedly used a bogus Panda recycling receipt from a business on July 16th, 2020, at Three Ireland, Sir John Rogerson's Quay and stole nine mobile phones worth €3,199 from the telecom firm on the same date.
She is charged with using a fake medical report from the Rotunda Hospital on November 23rd last year.
The judge also heard Ms McCauley had married and moved to Wexford under a different name.
Defence solicitor Conor McGreevy pleaded for bail and asked the court to note his client had a young child.
He submitted that the case was "a quite complex matter" and said Ms McCauley has surrendered her travel documents and would not apply for replacements.
The judge granted Ms McCauley a €500 bond and ordered her to sign on daily at her local garda station and provide gardai with a phone contact number.
She is due to appear before court again on July 6th.
