A 59-year-old woman has appeared in court accused of harassing another woman.

Valerie McCafferty, of Jeffrey Avenue, is further charged with common assault on July 25.

During a brief hearing the defendant spoke only to confirm she understood the charges.

An investigating officer told Derry Magistrate’s Court she believed she could connect McCafferty to the offences.

The defendant was released on bail to appear in court again on September 22.

As part of her bail conditions, McCafferty is banned from consuming alcohol and from having any contact with the complainant.

She must also reside at an address on Corrody Road.
