O’Riordan, who was due to appear before Ennis District Court today in relation to an alleged assault at Shannon Airport a year ago, has had her case adjourned until December 16.
During a brief hearing at Ennis District Court, solicitor, Bill O’Donnell, representing Ms O’Riordan, said his client “is receiving ongoing medical treatment” in a residential setting.
Canberries singer Dolores O’Riordan is receiving “on going” residential medical treatment and is too ill to attend court over air rage incident, her solicitor has said.
The mother-of-three is accused of three minor assault offences and one of obstruction.
Judge Patrick Durcan agreed to the adjournment, saying: ‘If the person is having treatment then I think we should facilitate that’.
She is accused of assaulting Garda Shane Dawson and two members of the Airport Police – Ronan O’Reilly and Eamon Power – at Shannon shortly after she disembarked an Aer Lingus aircraft which had just landed from New York’s JFK.
In court yesterday, Mr O’Donnell praised the work of Sgt John McCabe and other gardai in being very forthcoming with disclosure of evidence, saying that he has received statements in the case.
