Athlone District Court

Court appearance for man accused of public nudity in Athlone

A man in his 40s appeared before Athlone District Court yesterday (Wednesday) after he had allegedly been naked in the centre of the town that morning.

Sergeant Andrew Haran of Athlone Garda Station confirmed that there had been an incident on Church Street yesterday morning, and that a man was arrested and appeared in court a short time later.

He said the man had been charged with public indecency and was remanded on bail to appear again at a later date.

Video clips of a man who was on Church Street and was not wearing anything other than a hat and a pair of socks have circulated on social media in the last 24 hours.
