A 36-year-old man has been before Dublin District Court in connection with an incident in the city centre on Saturday night in which a car mounted the footpath and two pedestrians were seriously hurt.

Sean Creighton of Summer Street South in the Coombe in Dublin 8 was arrested on Saturday night and charged with dangerous driving at Basin Street. The court heard he made no reply to the charge.

He was remanded on bail of €200, on condition that he sign on twice weekly at Kilmainham Garda Station, does not leave the jurisdiction, stays away from the Basin Street area and does not contact the injured parties.

The case was adjourned until November and the court heard gardaí were awaiting directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Judge Michele Finan granted legal aid after receiving a statement of Mr Creighton's financial means.

Mr Creighton was arrested following the incident at around 11.20pm on Saturday night, in which a car struck a number of kerbside barriers and mounted the footpath at Thomas Street, before hitting three men.

Two of the men were taken to St James's Hospital to be treated for serious but non life-threatening injuries. The third did not require immediate medical attention.

Gardaí appealed for witnesses to come forward and asked anyone who may have camera or dash cam footage in the area between 11pm and 11.20pm on Saturday night to make this available to gardaí.

The incident has also been referred to the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission as the vehicle involved had been subject to an interaction with gardaí beforehand.
