Limerick District Court.

An All-Ireland winning hurler has been arrested on suspicion of committing perjury before a court arising out of an internal Garda probe into the alleged squaring away of road traffic offences.

The man, in his 20s, appeared by appointment at a garda station in Limerick this morning.

Gardai have charged the well known sportsman who is due to appear before Limerick District Court today.

“As part of an ongoing criminal investigation Gardaí this morning charged a male and is due to appear before Limerick District Court today,” said a Garda spokesman.

The man was originally questioned by members of the Garda National Bureau of Criminal Investigation (GNBCI) in March 2021.
