Report from initial court appearance of Cobh 3

Just under 100 people from Cobh, Cork city and other towns in East Cork were present to support us at our first court hearing on Thursday. This impressive turn-out was both heartening for the three of us facing charges and a strong indication of the depth of opposition to the water charges and metering that continues to exist in working class communities across Ireland.
The court appearance ended with the approvals for legal aid for Karen and Vincent (as someone in full-time employment I did not apply) and for our solicitor to be provided with the statements and evidence forming the basis of the state’s case. The case was adjourned until 28 January next year.
The main Cork newspaper reported the day’s events and various of those present were on Cork radio stations.
An independent reporter has made a number of interviews from the day – starting  and ending with myself – available on the internet.
