Woman had hair ripped out in clumps, court told
The Irish Times - September 15, 2015
      
Sinead Walsh (27) allegedly grabbed another woman by the hair and swung her around and on to the ground. The victim was allegedly holding large clumps of her hair when gardai arrived on the scene.

Ms Walsh appeared before Tallaght District Court charged with seriously
 assaulting another woman, contrary to the non-fatal offences against the person act. 
      
Ms Walsh, of St Maelruan's Park in Tallaght, is also charged with public drunkenness and threatening and abusive behaviour.

The alleged incident took place at Monalea Grove in Firhouse on June 14 last. The court heard the DPP has directed summary disposal of the matters in the District Court.

Outlining the allegation for jurisdiction purposes, Garda Daire MacEoin said it would be alleged that Ms Walsh grabbed the woman by her hair and swung her around before she fell to the ground.

Gda MacEoin claimed Ms Walsh ripped the woman's hair out of her head, and the victim was holding it in her hands when he arrived on the scene.

The garda said the victim did not initially make a complaint, but later came to the station and gave a statement of complaint.

Judge John Lindsay said he would accept jurisdiction of the matter, meaning it will remain in the District Court.

Defence solicitor Michael Hennessy requested a copy of any statements in relation to the allegation.

As part of her bail conditions, Ms Walsh must abstain from alcohol and have no contact with the alleged injured party. She has not yet entered a plea to the charge.
