Mr Gilder is also charged with possession of nearly 400 rounds of .22 calibre ammunition and 125 shotgun cartridges at the same location.

A court has heard a case involving the alleged possession of hundreds of rounds of ammunition and a pipe bomb in South Kerry is a complex one.

59-year-old Ivan Gilder of Gearha North, Blackwater, Sneem is facing a total of four charges under both the Firearms Act and the Explosive Substances Act.

His case came before Killarney District Court today.

It’s alleged that, on the 27th March, at Gearha North, Blackwater Bridge, Sneem, Ivan Gilder had possession of a 12 gauge shotgun and a rifle in such circumstances as to give rise to a reasonable inference that it was not for lawful purposes.

Mr Gilder is also charged with possession of nearly 400 rounds of .22 calibre ammunition and 125 shotgun cartridges at the same location.

He’s further facing a charge of knowingly having in his possession an explosive substance, namely a pipe bomb.

Mr Gilder was granted bail in Bantry District Court last month (March).

Today in Killarney District Court, Detective Garda Barry Cashman said that DPP directions are still being awaited; however, he sought a 12-week adjournment due to the complex nature of the case.

Padraig O’Connell asked the court if it’s anticipated further charges will be brought, but Judge Waters said that’s not a matter for him.
