A further charge of possessing a Class B drug, namely cannabis, on March 9, 2023 was also put to the defendant.

No details of the case were shared in court on Friday morning. A prosecutor said, based on the papers before the court, there is a prima facie case. Lennon’s solicitor Mr Connor Lunny said that was conceded.

District Judge Michael Ranaghan said he had read the papers and was satisfied there is a prima facie case.

Lennon said ‘yes’ when asked if she was aware of the charges against her. She was told she was not obliged to say anything in relation to the charges unless she wished to do so.

The prosecutor said the application was for bail on the same terms to appear at Craigavon Crown Court on June 18 for arraignment and a pre-arraignment date of June 6.
