Doherty was before the court for service of his book of evidence.

Doherty, aged 41, with an address at Kilclare Crescent, Tallaght, is charged with robbing a staff member at Maxol Filling Station, Newcastle Road, Lucan, on March 31, 2017.

The court had heard it will be alleged that at 9.10pm on March 31, 2017, Doherty entered the Maxol station wearing a balaclava and waving a hammer.

Doherty allegedly threatened the staff member with a hammer and made off with €520 in cash.

A Solicitor for the DPP told the Court that the book was ready to be served.

He said the DPP had consented for Doherty to be sent forward on trial to the present sitting of Dublin Circuit Court.

Judge McHugh issued Doherty with the alibi caution and sent him forward on bail to the present sitting of Dublin Circuit Court.
