Mr Boyd made no bail application to Dublin District Court and the case was adjourned at the DPP’s instructions.

The offenses allegedly took place at Collins Place on March 19.
Gardaí are continuing to investigate and are calling for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them, including those who may have been driving in the Collins Park area, Ballygall Road West or any adjacent road, between 8 and 9 p.m. Saturday .
