Dublin man accused of stabbing pal bailed

By Alan Erwin

A Dublin man accused of stabbing his friend at a Co Antrim hotel has been granted bail.

John Morley will not be released from custody until all conditions are met - including the lodgment of a £2,000 cash surety.

The 29-year-old is alleged to have carried out a sustained weekend attack at the Chimney Corner Hotel in Mallusk.

The victim was stabbed in the chest and leg.

Morley, of Finglas West, is charged with the attempted wounding of Derek White and possession of an offensive weapon with intent to commit an offence.

He is further accused of disorderly behaviour and possession of Class B drugs, namely cannabis.

Police detained him after being called to the hotel just outside north Belfast in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Paramedics were already on the scene treating Mr White, who is believed to be in his 30s.

The two men had travelled to Northern Ireland with their children for a football match.
