1 Mins read

Trevor McKirgan (58) from Knocktarna Grange in Coleraine is set to go on trial accused of stealing more than £100,000 from NI mental health charity, Inspire Wellbeing.

He appeared before District Judge Liam McNally at Belfast Magistrates’ Court on charges of theft and fraud by abuse of position.

The court heard that McKirgan allegedly arranged for payments to be made from Inspire Wellbeing into his bank account between June 2013 and October 2018.

He is accused of stealing a total of £102,035 belonging to the organisation between those dates.

McKirgan confirmed that he understood the charges.

Judge McNally granted an application to have him returned for trial at Belfast Crown Court on a date to be fixed.

He was released on his own bail of £500.
