Finglas Man Admits Raping Spanish Student In Ringsend


Share this article


A 25-year-old Finglas man has admitted raping a young Spanish student in Ringsend.

Earlier this year, Eoin Berkeley of Hamptonwood Way was cleared of carrying out a homophobic graffiti attack at The George.

Eoin Berkeley was arrested on July 17th last year after a young Spanish student came forward claiming she’d been lured from the Liffey boardwalk ito a tent at the Irish Glass Bottle site.

She claimed she was repeatedly raped by the then 24-year-old.

He was due to stand trial in November but pleaded guilty to three charges of rape when he appeared before the Central Criminal Court this morning.

His sentence hearing will take place in October and arrangements will be made for the complainant to come to Ireland for it if she so wishes.

Last February, Eoin Berkeley was cleared of scribbling homophobic slurs and swastikas outside The George and only last month he was jailed for two and a half years for walking around Santry and an area near Dublin Airport with what looked like an AK-47 rifle.

His barrister Michael Bowman said there were psychiatric issues he wanted to address the court on in October.
