A 56-year-old Donegal man will stand trial on two counts of criminal damage.

Denis McGettigan (56) of Glebe, Kilmacrennan, appeared for a brief hearing at Letterkenny District Court.

McGettigan is charged with damaging two front lights on a Peugeot van on February 7, 2020.

He is also charged with smashing the front window of a house at Carrownagonagh, Milford on February 17, 2021.

Garda Halligan gave evidence of serving a book of evidence on McGettigan.

The accused was present in court, but did not speak during the hearing.

Sergeant Jim Collins told the court that the Director of Public Prosecutions had consented for McGettigan to be sent forward to the next siting of Letterkenny Circuit Court, which commences on May 10, 2022.

Judge Deirdre Gearty administered the alibi warning and made a section 56 order relating to tapes of interviews.
