An investigation into ongoing dissident republican activity led to Mr Braney’s arrest last week.

Gardai objected to the bail application on a number of grounds.

One of the reasons given was they felt there was a concern for the safety of witnesses.

Justice Tony Hunt said there was no hesitation in refusing the bail application.

Mr Braney was remanded in custody until October 5, when his case is to be listed for mention again.

Mr Maguire also appeared in court today but no bail application was made.

He was remanded in custody until August 31, when his case is to be listed for mention again
