It was alleged by gardaí that on February 11, 2021, Daniel Dempsey, with an address listed as Moanavoth, Rathvilly in Carlow, became frustrated with a couple driving in front of him at Horsepasstown in Ballymore Eustace, Kildare.

The 43-year-old then allegedly approached the couple in the car, produced an imitation firearm and pointed it at one of them.

It was heard that this constituted a contravention of Section 9 (A) Criminal Justice (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009.

Judge Desmond Zaidan agreed to grant bail for the accused until the case returns to court for November 3 for hearing.
