A man described as suffering from psychosis has been charged with arson after a family of four was injured in a fire in Inchicore.
A mother and her three young children were hurt in the blaze at Tyrone Place in September 2017.
The woman, in her 30s, was taken to hospital for treatment along with her two sons aged 12 and 8 and her 7 year old daughter.
This afternoon 28 year old Ian O’Connor of Emmet Crescent in Inchicore appeared in court charged with arson.
Garda Colm Reynolds told the Judge the accused made no reply when he was charged and cautioned at Kilmainham Garda Station this afternoon. He added ‘there may be further charges’ in time.
The accused’s solicitor told the Judge client has psychosis and a number of other issues and he added that he may need protection while in custody.
He was remanded in custody to appear before Cloverhill District Court next week.
Judge Grainne Malone ordered that he receive the appropriate medical and psychiatric attention.
