Former Ireland star charged with stealing

NEWS: Former Ireland rugby international Brendan Mullin appeared in court in Dublin on Tuesday charged with stealing nearly 600 000 euros from the Bank of Ireland.


Mullin, a former British and Irish Lions centre, appeared before Dublin District Court following an investigation by the Irish police’s National Economic Crime Bureau.

The 57-year-old has been hit with nine counts of stealing 573 000 euros (£495 900, $677 000) from the Bank of Ireland between 2011 and 2013.

The former managing director of Bank of Ireland private banking is accused of deceiving two people to sign a payment instruction to make a gain for himself or another.

Mullin, who scored a then national record of 17 tries in the 55 Tests he played for Ireland in the 1980s and 1990s, made no comment when informed of the charges, according to a detective in the court.

Mullin was released on bail of £8,584 and is due back in court on November 11.
