She spoke once when asked if she wanted to be granted free legal aid and to nominate a solicitor's firm to represent her.
"Yes, Cahir O'Higgins," Lynch said. Judge Hamill granted legal aid and remanded her in custody.
Defending solicitor Stephen O'Mahony asked the judge to recommend medical treatment in custody for his client.
When asked by the judge if that was necessary, Mr O'Mahony replied: "Potentially." The judge agreed to the request.
Lynch's next appearance in court was three days later when she was remanded in custody for a further month.
Cahir O'Higgins, solicitor for Lynch, said that he had no difficulty with the application.
But he requested that she be moved from the Dochas centre to be nearer her family.
He said that his client was a prisoner who would attract "special status," but did not go into details about why.
Mr O'Higgins said that a video link could be set up to deal with any transportation issues.
Judge Denis McLoughlin made a recommendation that Ms Lynch be transported to Limerick Prison to appear via video link.
However the Herald has learned that Lynch is still in custody at the Dochas Centre Women's Prison in north Dublin.

The last time Julianne Mullin won on the lottery, she blew all the cash before she left the shop.
But the young Fermanagh woman's £56.30 winnings on that occasion pale into insignificance compared to the check she collected last week.
And after scooping the £414,041 on last week's EuroMillions draw she vowed to keep working and spend the cash wisely.
Julianne (28) from Belleek, said that she "could not believe it" when she put her ticket in the scanner and learned what she had won.
It is in stark contrast to her previous, smaller win. "I blew it in the shop that I checked the ticket in," she said.
Champagne flowed as Julianne was toasted at Lotto headquarters in Dublin.
Julianne said: "I checked it on the quick scanner twice and then that was it".
She had gone to get a sandwich for herself and a work colleague - but when she returned to JG Kelly Supplies in Co Monaghan with the news "no work got done".
Speaking about her plans, she said: "I'll probably just spend a bit of it. You know the normal car, maybe a holiday. I had planned to go to Australia."

The shelving of the €800 million plan to create a ‘New Galway’ at Ceannt Station – which was banked on to lift the city out of recession – has been described as a “huge disappointment”.
The National Transport Authority confirmed last week that the project – which would have created hundreds of construction jobs and around 3,000 permanent positions – has fallen victim to the economic downturn.
It’s understood that just two property investment funds in the world had the resources to carry out a project of its scale – one had no interest in the scheme, while the other could not raise funding.
