A Carrick on Suir farmer has been sent forward to trial at the Circuit Criminal Court on charges of assault causing harm and creating a substantial risk of death or serious harm.

John Hanrahan, Ballycurkeen, Carrick on Suir, appeared before the local District Court on Thursday when a book of evidence in the case was presented to him.

Hanrahan is charged that on May 22, 2007, he assaulted Eamonn Quirke, causing him harm. He is also charged with intentionally or recklessly driving a Volvo farm loader through a closed gate which created a substantial risk of death or serious harm to another.

State solicitor, Paul Fitzpatrick, said the Director of Public Prosecutions consented to send Hanrahan forward for trial.

Judge Terence Finn ordered the return of the charges to the next sitting of Clonmel Circuit Court, starting on July 1.

Bail was set in the defendant’s own bond of J3,000.

When the case was first called in the court, solicitor Eamonn Hayes, for Hanrahan, submitted a medical certificate on his client's behalf, saying he was unable to come to court.

However Judge Finn refused to accept this and issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Hanrahan, saying the defendant had no difficulty attending a crowded court room in the past.

Hanrahan came to court a short time later, when the short hearing proceeded
