A 21-year-old Wexford man has appeared before the Special Criminal Court charged with 11 counts of unlawful possession of explosives, firearms and ammunition.
Nicholas Kendall, of Springcrest, Keelogues, Barntown in Co Wexford, was brought before a special sitting of the three-judge court last week where Detective Garda Eileen Keogh gave evidence of caution and charge.
She said Kendall made no reply to the charges.
Kendall, wearing a white t-shirt, stood in court as the 11 charges were then read out to him.
These included nine charges of unlawful possession of explosives, including TIme Power Unit, a partially constructed improvised detonator and shotgun cartridge propellant powder, on October 8, 2010 at Springcrest.

A polish national is due before Arklow District Court last Wednesday in connection with the discovery of an estimated €102,000 worth of cannabis resin and herbal cannabis last week.
Father-of-two Pavel Seik (26), pictured, was arrested after the Wicklow Drugs Unit uncovered the drugs during a planned search of the woods at Garnagowlan, Woodenbridge, Avoca, last Tuesday afternoon.
After being detained overnight at Arklow Garda Station under section four of the Criminal Justice Act, Seik was brought before Bray District Court last Wednesday week, July 6, where he was charged with possession of drugs for sale or supply.
Seik, who resides in Arklow, and has been in Ireland for five years, was granted bail on his own bond of €1,000 under a number of conditions.
