Mortar accused to apply for bail

A man in custody accused of possessing mortars has not seen natural light in 130 days, it has been claimed.

Gary McDaid, of Sheriffs View, is on remand in relation to the discovery of four mortars on the Letterkenny Road on March 2.

Adjourning a bail application until Monday, Defence solicitor Ciaran Shiels said there is a psychologist’s report available and the 38-year-old has a glaucoma condition because he has not seen natural daylight for 130 days. McDaid will appear in court again next week.
