A fourth man, Henry Cahill, with addresses listed as 3522 Bishopsland, Kildare town, 2511 Conroy park, Kilcullen, and 32 Emerson Park, Prosperous, faces several charges of burglary at a variety of locations.

Meanwhile Anthony Wyse was released by Judge O’Neill on bail to appear at Naas District Court tomorrow, Wednesday, February 1.
He was granted bail subject to several conditions — that he sign on at Naas Garda Station and that he obey a curfew.
