He is also charged with assaulting Ms Tully McAuley causing her harm on the same occasion.
In addition, he is charged with threatening to kill or cause serious harm to Ms Tully McAuley’s brother, Thomas Tully and with threatening to kill or cause serious harm to a neighbour, Seamus Leddy. These offences are also alleged to have been committed on the same day.
On December 26th he was remanded in custody to Castlerea Prison following his initial court appearance in Co Cavan.
Wearing a blue jacket over an open-neck shirt, he still bore marks of apparent bruising under both eyes, which had been evident at his appearance in Cavan District Court a week earlier.
Solicitor Alan Gannon told the court that he was acting as agent in the case for solicitors Eirinn McKiernan and Company.
Mr Gannon held a brief consultation with his client as he stood in the holding area of the court.
The court was told that the defence was consenting to the application.
Mr Gannon had a further brief consultation with the accused man before he was led away. The hearing lasted less than a minute.
