A man has been charged in connection with a hit-and-run in Co Donegal last weekend in which a nine-year-old boy died.

23-year-old Sergee Kelly, with an address at Upper Mullaghamore, Cliffony, Co Sligo, appeared before Carrick-on-Shannon District Court.

Detective Garda Shane Maye, of Ballyshannon Garda Station, gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution.

He told the court that he charged Mr Kelly at 7.15pm yesterday evening at Ballyshannon station.

The accused faces a number of charges under the Road Traffic Act in relation to the crash on Atlantic Way, Bundoran on Saturday evening in which Ronan Wilson, from Kildress in Co Tyrone, died.

The boy had been visiting the town when he was struck by a vehicle.

Mr Kelly is charged with failing to stop at the scene of the crash, failing to remain at the scene, and failing to offer or get assistance.

He was granted bail after a €2,000 cash bond was given to the court with a further independent surety of €5,000 also provided.

He must sign on three times a week at Ballyshannon Garda Station, make no contact - either directly or indirectly or through social media or any other means - with prosecution witnesses, and surrender his passport.

Mr Kelly was remanded to appear before Ballyshannon District Court on 20 October.
