A 17 year old has appeared in court charged in connection with an assault on a 14 year old in Tipperary Town.

He’s been remanded in custody to appear in court in a week’s time.

The 17 year old who can’t be named due to his age was arrested by Gardai following an incident in the Lakelands area of Tipperary Town on Thursday evening during which a 14 year old boy was left critically injured.

He was subsequently charged with assault causing harm ( Under The Non Fatal Offences Against The Person Act) and appeared before a special sitting of Cashel District Court at 11.30 this morning.

A small crowd of people gathered for the hearing which heard details of the arrest, charge and caution.

Judge Terrance Finn then remanded the teenager in custody to appear in court again next Thursday the 16th

Meanwhile  a woman in her 30’s also detained in connection with the incident on Thursday was released without charge last night
