He pleaded for bail but was unsuccessful following strenuous Garda objections.

Heaney replied, “I did not rob anyone” to one charge, and made no reply to the second count.

He went voluntarily to Kevin Street Garda and stated he was there about the incident with the gun, and he said: “It is not my style”.

He was not alleged to have been the main antagonist.

Garda Stephen Duggan agreed with the defence that the accused destroyed clothing he wore because he was “afraid they would give him bad luck, and he wanted to destroy the evidence”.

Heaney, who is unemployed, had mental health issues and also cared for his elderly mother, the court was told.
