The pair have stated that they will fully contest charges against them of illegally entering restricted areas at Shannon Airport.

Their case has been adjourned, and a new hearing date will be set in the new year.

They face charges of entering an area at Shannon off limits to civilians and also scaling the airport perimeter fence on July 23 last.

Speaking to a radio station outside the courthouse today, Deputy Wallace explained their motives for entering the airport.

“Both the former T├ínaiste Eamon Gilmore and the former Minister for Justice Alan Shatter repeatedly said to us: ‘Go and get the evidence, ye go and get it and come back to us,” Mr. Wallace said.

“We went to Shannon, looking for the evidence, and obviously we were stopped.”
