Two men have appeared in court charged in connection with the death of Dale Creighton in Dublin.

James Reid, 23, with an address at Homelawn Avenue in Tallaght has been charged with producing a knife during the course of a dispute.

He is the fourth person to be charged in the case.

Judge John O'Neill granted Mr Reid bail, subject to strict conditions, which include that he stay away from Tallaght, surrender his passport and sign on three times weekly at a garda station.

He also made an undertaking not make contact with the others charged.

Earlier, 20-year-old Ross Callery of Westpark estate in Tallaght was charged with violent disorder at the footbridge on St Dominic's road in Tallaght at 4am on New Year's Day.

Dublin District Court heard how Mr Callery was charged and cautioned at Tallaght Garda Station.

Detective Garda Kieran McGrath told the court the accused made no reply when charged.

Bail was granted with strict conditions.

Two other men are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow in connection with the incident.

Two further suspects have been released without charge while a 20-year-old man remains in garda custody.

Yesterday, Graham Palmer, 24, with an address at Homelawn Road and 20-year-old Aisling Burke of Bolbrook Grove in Tallaght were both charged with violent disorder in the case.

Mr Creighton was seriously assaulted on the footbridge on St Dominic's Road at 4am on New Year's Day.

He was taken to Tallaght Hospital and later transferred to Beaumont Hospital, where he died yesterday.
