Monaghan man admits Culloville bomb charge

A man from County Monaghan has pleaded guilty at a Dublin court to possessing an improvised explosive device in Northern Ireland two years ago.

Paul Maguire, 26, with a last address at Drumleek South, Castleblayney, appeared at the Special Criminal Court.

He admitted unlawful possession of a device with intent to endanger life at Culloville in County Armagh in 2010.

He was charged under a law which allows suspects to be charged in the Republic or Northern Ireland.

His lawyer told the non-jury court that there was no objection to advancing evidence on another occasion as his client was already in custody.

Mr Justice Paul Butler, sitting with Judge Margaret Heneghan and Judge William Hamill, remanded Maguire in custody. He will be sentenced on 21 December.
