She appeared before Balbriggan District Court on Thursday morning (7 July), having first been arrested in December of 2020 on suspicion of offences contrary to the Criminal Justice (Theft and Fraud Offences) Act, 2001.

Gardaí noted at the time that the arrest represented "significant development" in a long-standing investigation into fraudulent activity in the financial institution.
