A MAN who damaged six vehicles in Killorglin town centre in one evening, was so drunk he was not aware of damage caused until six months later.
Appearing at Killorglin District Court, Daniel Fawcett, Apartment 1, Quinlans, The Square, handed in €300 in compensation and was given until February 14 to pay the balance of €1,334.
The defendant is charged with damaging vehicles belonging to Maura Moriarty, John O'Neill, Catherine Grady, Paul Kingston, Michael O'Grady and Jim O'Shea at locations including Iveragh Road, Fairfield and Market Street on September 24, 2011.
Solicitor Dave Ramsey said his client was so intoxicated he was not aware of damage caused until six months later. Stating that he had since turned his life around, the solicitor added that Mr Fawcett was attending meetings and a local counsellor.
The defendant who lives with his partner and their four month old son, is currently doing a VTOS course.
