Woman who allegedly spat at gardaí has been refused bail

Julie McDonagh (34), who allegedly spat at two gardaí in Dublin, has been refused bail.

The incident took place on Tuesday on Marlborough Street in Dublin City Centre when Ms McDonagh was denied entry to a hostel.

As well as this, she had connected charges for breach of the peace, being intoxicated and indecent behaviour in a garda station.

Her defence solicitor ‘Michael Kelleher’ stated the vulnerability of Ms McDonagh, denying suggestions that she made Covid-19 threats while spitting at the gardaí.

Mr Kelleher stated “She said she never said she had coronavirus, she did say she had AIDS but did not say it in a threatening manner”.

The spitting was also described as being inadvertent due to the distressed nature of his client.

Her next court appearance will be tomorrow.

The two gardaí were sent home to decide on what action should be taken in regards to the incident.
