The trial of Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan over an incident at Shannon Airport in 2014 has been deferred for medical reasons.
The 43-year-old had been summonsed to appear at Ennis District Court today. However, her legal team has successfully requested that the singer’s case be adjourned.
O’Riordan was arrested at Shannon on November 10th last after she arrived on Aer Lingus flight from New York.
Gardaí and airport police personnel were called to the aircraft after it had reached the terminal building.
The DPP has recommended that the singer face three separate minor assault or Section 2 assault summonses under the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act, 1997 from the incident. The singer is also facing an additional summons for resisting arrest at Shannon on the same date.
The cases had been listed for the first court of the new legal term for Ennis District Court today.
