Bail conditions for seven people charged in connection with the alleged false imprisonment of then tanáiste Joan Burton at a protest in Jobstown have remained unchanged after the defendants gave undertakings to the court.

The Director of Public Prosecutions had expressed concern that a protest planned for this weekend could undermine the integrity of the trial process and had asked for bail conditions to be altered.

But today Sean Guerin SC acting for Paul Murphy TD, who is one the defendants, told the court that his client would agree not to speak about the subject matter of the trial or the charges he faces at the protest tomorrow.

Lawyers for other defendants said they too would give this undertaking.

The lawyer for co-defendant Ken Purcell said his client was giving the same undertaking as he did yesterday.

Mr Guerin added that his client Paul Murphy said the case had given all parties occasion for reflection on the limits of free speech in the context of a trial.

Sean Gillane SC for the DPP said the formal intervention of the court was no longer required following the undertakings from the accused.
