A group of youths who allegedly damaged a Kildare hotel appeared in Kilcock Court on 19 June.

Judge Desmond Zaidan heard that the group attended a party in a room at the Hamlet Court Hotel, Johsntownbridge, after a 19 year old Dunboyne girl booked the room on the night of 23 December 2011.

While some of the group are over age, a number, from north Kildare, are underage, and cannot be named.

The case has been adjourned until 3 July. David Powderly, solicitor, said not everyone in the group will be taking the same course of action in the case.
