A 29-year-old Dublin woman will face trial accused of having sex with a dog. A bestiality case came before Dublin District Court today.
The media was prevented from from identifying the accused as part of reporting restrictions
It is alleged she committed an act of buggery with a dog, reportedly part Rottweiler.
It allegedly happened at her home address on a date in December 2019. She was charged within the last month. The case had its first listing at the district court today.
Judge Treasa Kelly adjourned the case until September for the prosecution to complete the book of evidence, which must be served on the accused before trial.
Defence solicitor Tony Collier applied for the imposition of reporting restrictions which was agreed to.
Judge Kelly directed that the defendant cannot, at present, be identified, but she added that this was an interim order, until the next hearing.
Legal aid was granted after the solicitor said that the woman was a suitable candidate while also a receipient of social welfare.
