A 50-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of Conor O'Brien in Co. Meath.

Earl McKevitt, of Avondale Park in Mulhuddert in Dublin 15, faced 6 charges in total when he appeared before Carlow District Court this afternoon.

He is accused of the murder of Conor O'Brien in Enfield, Co. Meath.

Last Friday, the 19-year-old's body was found outside a house.

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

Mr McKevitt was also charged with 5 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 did not reply to these charges.

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

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