A man is facing trial accused of possession of child abuse videos and images at a house in Dublin.

Adrian Short (44) was granted bail when he appeared in Dublin District Court charged with the offence.

Judge Conal Gibbons adjourned the case for the preparation of a book of evidence.

Mr Short, with an address at Dunville Road, Athlumney, Navan, Co Meath, is charged with knowingly possessing 14 videos and seven images constituting child abuse.

The offence is alleged to have happened at a house at Griffeen Glen Drive, Lucan last March 29.

A detective garda from Clondalkin station told Dublin District Court she arrested the accused at Dunville Road, Athlumney.

He  was later charged and he made no reply after caution.

Mr Short was handed a copy of the charge sheet, the court heard.

The garda said the DPP directed trial on indictment and there was no objection to bail.

Judge Gibbons granted bail in Mr Short’s own bond of €200, with no cash lodgement required.

The accused had surrendered his passport to gardaí and undertook not to apply for a replacement, under bail conditions.

He is to sign on twice weekly at Navan garda station and notify gardaí of any change of address.

The judge granted free legal aid following an application by defence solicitor Fergus O’Regan.
