Garda Egan said gardaí were seeking Mr Quilligan to reside at his home address at Chestnut Close, Green Park, Mahon and to abide by a curfew that he stay at the house between 10pm and 6am each night.

Gardaí were also seeking that Mr Quilligan sign on daily at Anglesea Street Garda Station every day between 9am and 7pm and that he provide gardaí with a mobile phone number where he can be contacted at all times.

Gardaí were also seeking that he would abstain from all intoxicants while on bail and that the would have no contact, direct or indirect, with any of the staff working at the Circle K garage on the Blackrock Road.
