Two brothers have appeared in court charged in connection with their involvement in an alleged altercation with a group of construction workers in Navan last week.

LMFM radio reports that Ian Keogh (31) with an address at Mornington Avenue, Trim has been charged with assault causing harm, threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour and production of a hammer during the course of a dispute on Trimgate Street last Wednesday.

His 37-year-old brother, Wayne Keogh of Flower Hill, Navan was charged with threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour along with the production of a shovel during the course of the same dispute.

After evidence of arrest was given, Trim District Court was told there was no objection to bail in the case of Ian Keogh and he was remanded on bail to a date later this month.

However, Gardaí did object to bail in the case of Wayne Keogh but Judge Cormac Dunne granted him bail on his own bond of €100 along with an independent surety of €600.

A video of the incident went viral on social media in which two men were seen entering into a verbal row with builders working on a site on the Square in Navan town centre.

The argument flared into violence and hammers, shovels and wooden poles were used as weapons.
