He is due back in court on April 26th at Longford District Court.

A man in his 20s has been granted bail following an alleged stabbing in Longford on Tuesday of this week.

Patrick Stokes, of Corboy, Edgeworthstown, was charged with two offences following the incident at Luigi's take away on Main Street

Judge Bernadette Owens heard that the accused allegedly entered the fast food outlet just after 3pm on Tuesday afternoon with an implement hidden in his jacket before an alleged assault on another man.

The married father of three was also charged with a section six public order offence, after the court heard the alleged assault was witnessed by over a dozen people, including some children.

A man in his 20s was hospitalised following the incident.

Judge Bernadette Owens heard that the Gardai have taken witness statements and have CCTV of the incident and the court also heard the alleged assault is linked to a feud in Longford.

However, this was denied by defence solicitor Brid Mimnagh

Gardai objected to bail for a number of reasons, including the seriousness of the offences.

However Judge Owens, after a 10 minute recess, granted bail, subject to nine strict conditions, including lodging a €1000 surety; to obey a curfew; to sign on at Granard Garda Station three times a week; stay off social media and to stay out of Longford save for legal consults and court appearances.
