A man wanted in connection with an IRA mortar attack on a British army barracks in Germany in 1996 has been granted bail at the High Court in Dublin.

James Corry (46) was arrested in Killorglin, Co Kerry, last Friday on foot of a European Arrest Warrant issued by German authorities.

He is suspected of being involved in the attack in Osnabruck, where three mortar shells were fired at the military base.

The prosecution warrant states that Corry is wanted for terrorism-type offences. Counsel for the Irish Minister of Justice and Equality, Ronan Kennedy, told the High Court yesterday there was no objection to bail on certain terms and conditions.

He said Corry has very significant ties in the community, as he has lived in Kerry for 20 years and has no previous convictions.

Counsel for Corry, Anne-Marie Lawlor, said there was consent to bail on an independent surety of €3,000 and on condition that Corry reside at a given address.

Ms Justice Donnelly remanded Corry on bail to appear before the court on November 10.
