Gerard O'Neill was arrested in October (14) and accused of entering the plush pad while carrying a gold club after a break-in.

He appeared in Dublin District Court on Friday (08May15) to answer to counts of trespassing, resisting arrest and production of a golf club as a weapon capable of causing injury, and was found guilty of each charge.

He also faced a fourth accusation of threatening to kill or harm Gardai (police) after reportedly telling officers he would bite them and infect them "with HIV".

Judge Ann Ryan deferred a ruling on the threat to kill or harm charge for legal submissions, and adjourned sentencing on the others until a later date.

O'Neill, 32, was remanded in custody due to a string of prior convictions, one of which carried a suspended sentence.
