A man accused of committing a burglary with the aid of another man had allegedly been wearing a strange combination of clothing.

According to court documents, Niall Carton, 29, with an address given as 32 Parkmore, Baltinglass, Wicklow, was allegedly caught wearing underwear on his head when he allegedly committed the offence at Duke Street in Athy on August 19 last.

The documents also noted that he had allegedly been using a pair of black socks as gloves at the time.
