Former Gorey town councillor Jimmy Fleming was before the District Court last week, charged with the theft of a burger, pitta bread and a piece of fish from a fast food takeaway.

Fleming (42), of Ballinakill, Ballycanew, appeared on two charges of theft and one charge of criminal damage at Tony's Little Mix Takeaway in Riverchapel on September 23 and 30 of last year.

The criminal damage charge related to a €10 lock which was broken during the course of the incident on September 23. Solicitor MacCarten O'Gorman said that his client was 'embarrassed' by the incidents and that they had occurred as a result of a 'business relationship that had turned sour'. He said that his client had co-operated fully with gardaí and regrets the incident. Judge Haughton handed down a fine of €200 for the criminal damage and took the other charges into consideration.
