A 24 year old female teacher, accused of engaging in a sex act with a teenage boy, is to face trial.

This 24 year old told gardai that she met him at an over 18s nightclub.

She is accused of engaging in a sex act with a male child under the age of 17 on February 1st and 13th of last year.

She was initially charged last October, and was charged with four new offences this morning.

A detective told the court she made no reply to three of the charges when they were put to her this morning - but replied to the fourth saying "I met him at an over 18s nightclub".

The teacher was remanded on continuing bail and is due back in court in April.

She’s previously been granted legal aid as the court heard she lost her job.

Her solicitor raised concerns that a photographer had stuck his camera under the teacher’s face as she arrived at court this morning.

The Judge warned the media that reporting restrictions are in place and no details are to be given to identify the accused adding ‘sure as hell no pictures were to be taken’.
