A homeless man who was caught with several fake travel passes, including one in the name of Brad Pitt, has been given a suspended sentence.
Clive Keogh (40) was formerly a successful graphic designer who ran his own printing firm. However the Dublin father-of-one lost everything and ended up divorced and homeless when the recession hit and he took to drink, his counsel explained.
Keogh, of no fixed abode but formerly of Brookhaven Drive, Blanchardstown, was caught with the fake pass by a Garda on Parnell Street on November 7, 2013.
He pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to one count of possessing a false travel pass with the intention of inducing another to accept it as genuine. He admitted possessing four other free travel passes on a USB key, one of which was in the name of a 'Brad Pitt' with an address in Donnybrook.
