A court's been told there's no CCTV footage of an attack on a Garda at a Garth Brooks concert in Croke Park.
27-year-old Gary Doyle of Kinallen Road, Ballyward, Castlewellan, Newry in County Down was charged with assault causing harm to a Garda - breaking their nose - on September 10, but he denies the allegation.
DPP directions were due today - but Gardaí say they're unavailable because a medical report is awaited, and requested an adjournment until January.
Mr Doyle's defence said the case weighed on his client - and argued it shouldn't take four months for a medical report.
The judge said he expected progress and ordered the accused - who is on bail - to appear again on January 16.
The solicitor also told the court he had written to Croke Park about CCTV, but the investigating officer had obtained the footage.
The court sergeant said, "the CCTV does not show the assault, but it will be furnished".
