*Marty Hannon. 

A SHANNON man has been ordered to stay off all social media platforms after being accused of threatening to kill or cause serious harm to two men via social media.

At Ennis District Court on Wednesday, Martin Hannon (41) with an address of an apartment at Boheraroan, Newmarket on Fergus appeared in connection with two charges of threat to kill or cause serious harm to two males on dates between November 6th and November 16th last.

In the case, Mr Hannon is charged with without lawful excuse, making a threat to kill or cause serious harm to Devipyemaan Devipyemaan and Michael Hillard.

The two charges are contrary to Section 5 of the Non Fatal Offences Against the Person Act 1997.

There was no objection to bail provided that Mr Hannon stay off all social media platforms and not make broadcasts from any social media platform.

After reading the bail conditions, Judge Gabbett said that the bail condition concerning social media is the most serious aspect of it.

He asked solicitor for Mr Hannon, Stiofan Fitzpatrick ‘are you happy with that?” and in reply, Mr Fizpatrick said, “Yes”.

Det Garda Noelle Bergin arrested Mr Hannon on Limerick’s Dock Rd at 2.50pm on November 16th last.

Mr Hannon was charged with the two offences at Shannon Garda Station on November 17th and made no reply when charged.

Mr Hannon was released on station bail to appear before Wednesday’s sitting of Ennis District Court.

Sgt Louis Moloney told Judge Gabbett that directions from the DPP are required and Mr Hannon could be remanded on bail to the same court to January 24th next.

Judge Gabbett granted legal aid to solicitor, Stiofan Fitzpatrick to represent the accused.

The bail conditions also require Mr Hannon to lodge €500 cash, sign on once a week at his local Garda station and have no direct or indirect contact with the alleged injured parties.
