A County Down man arrested at Saturday’s sell-out Garth Brooks gig in Croke Park has been accused breaking a garda’s nose during the concert.
Gary Doyle, 27, of Kinallen Road, Ballyward, Castlewellan, Newry, appeared before Judge Bryan Smyth at Dublin District Court today and was released on €1,000 bail pending directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
He was charged with assault causing harm to the officer at Croke Park on September 10 but the court heard he denies the charge.
Garda Sergeant Elaine Murtagh told Judge Bryan Smyth she arrested the man at 10:05 pm on Saturday at Croke Park.
He was taken to Store Street Garda station in the city centre.
The court heard that in reply to charge after caution he said: “I didn't do it” and the defence wanted copies of the CCTV evidence.
The court was also told and that he was a sober and a designated driver for a group who had come from County Down for the gig. He will appear again in October.
