A former senior official with Anglo Irish Bank has appeared in court charged with Revenue offences.

Tiarnan O'Mahoney of Glen Pines, Old Longhill Road, Enniskerry, Co Wicklow is accused of concealing a bank account, obstructing a revenue official and producing an incorrect document.

The offences are alleged to have occurred between March and November 2003 when Mr O'Mahoney was an officer of Anglo Irish Bank.

The court was told the Director of Public Prosecutions has directed trial on indictment and the 54-year-old was remanded on bail until February of next year.

The court heard Mr O'Mahoney made no reply to the charges.

The court was also told the case had no factual connection with that of three other former senior Anglo executives, whose trial is due to begin in January.

Judge Patricia McNamara made an order that nothing should be said or reported that could prejudice that pending trial or affect the rights of the accused. 

Mr O'Mahoney is the former head of treasury at Anglo Irish Bank.
