Motorcyclist Assaulted in Ennis: Suspect Charged and Bound for Trial

In a disturbing incident that took place in Ennis, Mr E Baker, a representative of Messrs Mulligan Bros & Todd from Limerick, was the victim of an assault while riding his motorcycle. The case was brought before Mr A.N. Brady, RM, where the accused, Pat Hayes, faced charges related to the assault and the resulting damage to Mr Baker’s motorbike.

According to the account presented in court, Mr Baker was cycling on his motorbike at Edenvale, located approximately two miles from Ennis. Without any apparent provocation, Pat Hayes and his companions, who were travelling in a car, attacked Mr Baker and deliberately damaged his motorcycle. The assault was described as grossly unjustifiable and unprovoked, causing significant harm to both Mr Baker and his vehicle.

During the proceedings, the defendant claimed that he had never seen Mr Baker before, refuting any prior knowledge or motive for the assault. Despite the denial, the nature of the assault and the damage inflicted on the motorcycle suggested a deliberate act of violence.

In light of the seriousness of the charges, the accused, Pat Hayes, was remanded for trial at the assizes. It was reported that Mr Brady, presiding over the case, agreed to accept bail if it could be provided.

The incident has raised concerns within the community regarding the safety and well-being of individuals travelling on the roads. The assault on Mr Baker highlights the need for heightened awareness and respect among road users to prevent such acts of violence and vandalism.

As the case proceeds to trial, it is hoped that justice will be served and that incidents like these will serve as a reminder of the importance of promoting a safe and harmonious environment for all road users.
