Mr Kenneally (67), formerly of Laragh, Summerville Avenue in Waterford, was in Waterford District Court on Tuesday last March 27th.
Det Sgt Siobhan Keating confirmed that she had served the book of evidence on Mr Kenneally in relation to all charges.

Insp Murt Whelan said the Waterford State Solicitor had advised the matter should be sent forward to Waterford Circuit Criminal Court on April 10th but he had no objection to defence solicitor Pat Newell’s application for a four-week adjournment.
Judge Kevin Staunton granted Mr Newell’s application and remanded Mr Kenneally on continuing bail on his own bond of €1,000 to April 24th when it is expected an application will be made to have Mr Kenneally returned for trial on indictment.
