Another five men who appeared in court on Friday over the same incident were also granted bail against a personal guarantee of €2,000 each.
The fight broke out within a bar on the premises of the Leone Philharmonic Society and spilled onto Republic Street. The society distanced itself from the incident, saying it was not connected with it.
