A man from Newtownabbey has been charged with having a gun and ammunition in Donegal on Easter Monday.

John Moran, 52, of Serpentine Avenue, claimed the charge was related to a court case a year ago when he gave evidence for the prosecution.

He was arrested as Irish police broke up a dispute outside the Orchard Bar, Gleneely near Carndonagh.

Donegal District Court was told that there had been a row between locals and several people from Northern Ireland.

Mr Moran, a car salesman, said he had a family holiday home at Carndonagh where many relatives live.

He was released on bail of 25,000 euro.
