Extra charges have been brought against a teenage boy accused of attacking a youth who was seriously injured in a stabbing outside a Leaving Cert party in west Dublin.

The incident happened as more than 150 young people attended an exam results celebration at Vela nightclub, at Liffey Valley, west Dublin, at about 12.30 am on September 3.

Emergency services were called, and a youth in his late teens was rushed by ambulance to James Connolly Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

In September, a 16-year-old boy, whose identity cannot be reported because he is a minor, appeared at the Dublin Children's Court.

He is accused of assault causing harm to a male, at the Vela nightclub car park, on September 3, contrary to section three of the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person act.

He was also charged with possessing a knife as a weapon six days later at another location in west Dublin.

There was no application for bail, and he has remained in custody on remand.

Further charges were brought against him this week for engaging in violent disorder and the production of a weapon.

Judge Brendan Toale adjourned the case for a preliminary hearing later this month to consider if the case should stay in the Children’s Court or go to the Circuit Court, which has broader sentencing powers.
