Man who attacked Charleen Murphy has applied for new bail

He is awaiting a hearing.

The man who allegedly attacked influencer Charleen Murphy last month has applied for a new High Court bail.

The Irish Mirror has reported that the 27 year old man who was charged with assault causing harm in February was refused bail at Dublin District Court.

He has now lodged a fresh bail bid in the High Court and is currently sitting in Cloverhill.

A new hearing date has been set for this application.

Charleen took to social media last month to thank fans as she returned to work after the horrific incident, taking part in the Saving Grace podcast live show in Dublin earlier this week with her Hold My Drink podcast co-host Ellie Kelly.

Charleen wrote: “Thank you so so much for the warm welcome at @savinggracepod last night.

“It was so nice to be there and get back to a little bit of my normality and I’m so glad I was able to get up there and do it.

“As I said on stage, it’s one thing being a strong woman, but the support I feel from strong women around me both on and offline is just indescribable.

“There won’t ever be enough words to thank yous.”

The content creator was reportedly attacked when she was having dinner at a restaurant in Dublin city.

Charleen needed stitches following the terrifying incident.

She confirmed that Gardaí are investigating the attack.

“I want to start this post by saying thank you for the amount of love and support I’ve been receiving the last few days. I’m so thankful for all my followers and grateful for this community.

“Unfortunately, there remains a very dark side to social media that I have become a victim of in a way I could never have imagined.

“I’m sure a lot of you have seen the news that I was the victim of a very serious and violent attack on Friday night.”

She continued: “As a result of the attack I was taken to hospital and received stitches to a glass wound to my head.

“It hurts my heart that I have to be strong and heal from a situation that never should have happened. The matter is now being dealt with by the Gardaí and the courts so I cannot say much more than this to ensure I do not prejudice the case.”
