A former Irish Rugby international is to face trial on 15 charges of theft, false accounting and deception.

57-year-old Brendan Mullin, of Stillorgan Road in Donnybrook, Dublin 4, appeared before Dublin District Court this afternoon.

Andrew Lowth reports:

"Brendan Mullin had been the subject of a Garda National Economic Crime Bureau investigation into theft, false accounting and deception.

He is accused of nine counts of theft, totalling 573 thousand euro from Bank Of Ireland at two of the banks offices in Dublin 4 between 2011 and 2013.

On one of those occasions, It’s alleged Mr Mullin stole 500,000 euro from the bank on December 16th, 2011.

He’s alleged to have stolen a further 73 thousand euro on 8 other occasions from the bank.

Mr Mullin is also accused of five counts of false accounting within the same time period.

The court heard he was also charged of dishonestly, by deception, inducing a named man and woman to sign a payment instruction with the intention of making a gain for himself or causing loss to another.

Wearing a suit and light blue shirt, Mr Mullin did not address the court throughout the hearing.

He was granted bail by Judge Michael Walsh on the condition he surrenders his passport.

He’ll appear in court again on November 11th, where a book of evidence will be served."
