They were found with injuries on the busy city thoroughfare at around 12.45pm, and John Cash later succumbed to his injuries despite the best efforts of medics.

Andy Cash appeared before Carlow District Court this morning, where Garda Colm McMenamin gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution. 

The accused solicitor asked that Mr Cash receives any appropriate psychiatric care while in custody and be medically assessed upon his arrival in prison. Judge Carthy agreed to these requests. Mr Cash was subsequently remanded in custody to Cloverhill for one week.
