A man made it through security at Dublin airport this week and boarded a plane without a passport or boarding card.
It's alleged the 48 year old man made his way into Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport on Monday and passed through screening without a boarding pass or passport.
He was then able to get on the 7.05pm flight to Birmingham.
But airport police then removed him and he appeared in court yesterday.
He was charged with trespassing with intent to commit an offence and failure to produce a passport or similar document.
He was also fined 700 euro.
The alleged breach comes following claims from a whistleblower who made a protected disclosure saying security screening at Dublin Airport is not fit for purpose.
