Incident at Longford mosque to be raised at Longford court today

A number of men who were involved in an alleged incident at a mosque in Longford are due back in court this morning.

Six men, with various addresses in Edgeworthstown, previously appeared in court in connection with an alleged assault at the Longford Islamic centre in Longford town in August 2015.

The last court sitting heard that a process of mediation between both sides in the alleged incident was entered into and an update on that is expected today at Longford District Court in front of Judge Seamus Hughes.
