A teenage boy (17) was charged yesterday with the murder of Aaron Keating in Ongar, west Dublin, earlier this week. As a minor, the youth cannot be named. He appeared before Judge Brendan Toale at the Children’s Court, accompanied by his parents and has since been remanded to Oberstown Children Detention Campus.

The victim who was known to State social services and lived in support accommodation suffered serious wounds in an incident on Main Street in Ongar, D15, on Tuesday last circa 7pm. He was taken to Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown, where he was pronounced dead.

Stephen Mooney was also charged yesterday with the murder of his wife and mother of two, Anna Mooney, who died following a stabbing at the family home in Kilbarrack Road, Raheny.

The 51-year-old was charged before Judge Bryan Smyth at Dublin District court yesterday for the killing of his 46-year-old wife. He has been remanded in custody until Tuesday next, June 20.  

Meanwhile, the three men (aged in their 30s and 40s) arrested following an incident of assault in Donaghmede, on Thursday last, have been charged. All three appeared before the CCJ yesterday, Friday, June 16. The victim was taken to Beaumont Hospital to be treated for injuries which are believed to be serious but non-life threatening.
