A woman has been charged as part of an investigation into the death of a man after an assault in Gorey, Co Wexford, at the weekend.

Father-of-three Philip Doyle, 33, died after an incident at a house in the Ramsgate Village estate in Gorey early yesterday.

A woman arrested at the scene, 30-year-old Sarah Doyle, with an address at The Heath, Ramsgate Village, was questioned yesterday and throughout today.

She was charged with an offence under the Firearms and Offensive Weapons Act, that she produced a knife capable of inflicting a serious injury at The Heath, Ramsgate, on 26 January.

She was brought before a special sitting of Gorey District Court this evening where evidence was given by gardaí of arrest, charge and caution.

The woman was not called upon to speak in court.

There was no objection to bail and Judge Gerard Furlong agreed to remand the accused on bail, to appear again in court on 15 April next.

She was told to sign on at Bray Garda Station twice a week, surrender her passport and lodge €500 in court as part of her bail conditions.
