Jailed peace activist Margaretta D’Arcy has been remanded in custody at a court hearing in Co Clare this afternoon.

The 79-year-old was jailed last week for illegally accessing a runway at Shannon Airport during a protest against the US Military.

She appeared in Ennis District Court today over her refusal to sign a bond pledging to keep away from the Airport which led to the activation of her three-month suspended sentence.

Reporter Shona Murray says Ms D’Arcy asked the judge to throw the case out.

Ms Murray said: “She said that she would like the case to be thrown out, she said it would save an awful lot of time, he could just throw the case out.

“She also said that the country’s broke, the country couldn’t afford such a hearing.

“The judge said that in the circumstances that couldn’t be possible, and this is a preliminary matter, and he wasn’t in a position to throw the case out.”

(CNN) —One person died and another was missing after a Navy helicopter carrying a crew of five made an emergency water landing off Virginia Beach during a routine training operation, the Navy said Wednesday.

The fatality appeared to have been among the four crew members of the MH-53E Sea Dragon who were rescued and taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries.

None of the crew have been identified.

The Navy said in a statement that the Coast Guard cutter Shearwater and two MH-60S helicopters were conducting a search-and-rescue effort near Fort Story for the missing person.

The air temperature was 28 degrees and the water temperature was 41 degrees, with 1- to 2-foot seas, said U.S. Coast Guard spokesman Nyx Cangemi.

The helicopter was assigned to Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron Fourteen (HM-14), which is based at Naval Station Norfolk Chambers Field.

The MH-53E Sea Dragon carries no weapons. It has two pilots and a crew of one to six, depending on its mission, according to the Navy. There were 31 of the aircraft in operation, it said.

A small plane made an emergency landing on an expressway in the Bronx, N.Y. Saturday.

Two men and one woman were the only passengers of the small aircraft and all were hurt when the plane landed near East 233rd Street shortly before 3:22 p.m. They were transported to St. Barnabas Hospital, which is about four miles from the scene, according to the FDNY.

The pilot made the surprise landing because someone on the small flight “experienced an onboard emergency,” said Nancy Silvestri, deputy press secretary of the New York City Office of Emergency Management.

The FDNY wrote in a tweet that the injuries were “non-life threatening” and no cars on the highway were affected.

Two of the injured refused treatment and all three were expected to be released Saturday, according to St. Barnabas Hospital.

The plane is registered to Michael Schwartz of South Salem, N.Y., and NBCNewYork.com reported that the Danbury Municipal Airport confirmed that Schwartz was the pilot when it took off.

The trio departed from Danbury, Conn., for a “tour of the Statue of Liberty,” Silvestri said. They were on their way back to Connecticut before the emergency landing, she said.

The four-seat, one-engine 1966 Piper PA sustained minor damage, the Federal Aviation Administration reported to NBC New York. The plane is registered to an owner in South Salem, N.Y, according to aircraft registration records.

Kathleen Bergen, a spokeswoman for the FAA, said both the National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA are investigating the crash to determine the probable cause of the accident.
