Detective Garda Kevin McCarthy formally arrested O’Dalaigh at the courthouse on Washington Street, Cork, yesterday. Detective Garda McCarthy said he cautioned the accused.
Inspector Mary King said the Director of Public Prosecutions had directed trial by indictment in the case. There was no objection to the accused being remanded on bail in the case.
Judge Con O’Leary remanded him on his own bail of €500 and adjourned the case until October 11 to allow time for preparation and service of a book of evidence.
The accused was represented in court by solicitor Donough Molloy.
It is alleged that the incident occurred at Coláiste An Chroi Naofa, Carraig Na Bhfear, Co Cork.
Once a book of evidence is served, it is anticipated that the case continues will then be sent forward for trial by judge and jury at Cork Circuit Criminal Court.
