A date has been set for the trial of a former Mayo-born solicitor charged with the theft of almost € 30m from seven different banks.

Michael Lynn, formerly of St. Albans, Sandymount in Dublin, is facing 21 counts of theft between October 2006 and June 2007.

In one of the sample charges before the court, Mr Lynn is accused of stealing €4.1 million from Irish Nationwide on April 4, 2007.

In another sample count, he is charged with stealing €3.6 million from Ulster Bank on October 20, 2006.

The Crossmolina native was arrested in Brazil in 2013 and was extradited back to Ireland two months ago.

His trial is expected to take between six and eight weeks, and is due to get underway in January 2020.

Mr Lynn was remanded in continuing custody.
