A man has appeared in court in Limerick charged in connection with an incident at Thomond Park stadium, when a banana was thrown at French international defender Gael Clichy.
There was public outrage after the Manchester City player tweeted about the incident following the glamour tie between the Premier League champions and Limerick City last August.
Kelvin Reynolds of Pinewood Avenue, Caherdavin, Limerick, appeared on two charges arising out of the alleged incident at Limerick District Court
The 20-year-old is charged with engaging in threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to provoke a breach of the peace on 5 August.
He is also charged with assaulting Sergeant Caimin Treacy contrary on the same date.
Solicitor Sarah Ryan was assigned to represent Mr Reynolds, who was granted legal aid.
Ms Ryan told the court she was seeking a disclosure order and Judge Eugene O'Kelly adjourned the case until 10 April.
The court heard the accused replied "I'm sorry" to both charges when he was arrested and formally charged.
He was remanded on continuing bail until his next court appearance when a plea is expected to be entered or a date fixed for a hearing.
