A Dublin man who was extradited from Amsterdam has pleaded guilty to engaging in violent disorder in a Dublin city pub in 2013.

Frederick Thompson, 33, of Loreto Road, Maryland, Dublin was sent forward from the District Court accused of engaging in violent disorder along with two other named men at Morrissey's Pub, Cork Street on 7 January 2013.

Thompson entered a guilty plea at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Judge Mary Ellen Ring remanded Thompson in custody until his sentence hearing on 2 February, 2015.

On a previous occasion defence counsel Sandra Frayne BL said her client has no income and is supported by his mother who works as a street trader.

Judge Ring granted her request for legal aid and a senior counsel.

One man is still before the courts in relation to the same incident and is awaiting trial, while a third has pleaded guilty to the same offence as Thompson.
