Stole alcohol

A Judge told Sligo District Court he was getting tired of the same man coming before the courts.

Patrick Sweeney, Rathbraughan Park admitted a new charge of stealing a crate of Bulmers and another two crates of Miller valued at €42.97 from House and Garden, Pearse Road on May 25th.

Inspector Sean McGinty told the court Gardai were also investigating an incident where windows of a car had been broken recently – allegedly by the defendant.

Sweeney told the court he was getting treatment.

Judge Kilrane said he was getting tired of the defendant and his excuses.

"If you need treatment, go and get it. I'm getting pretty tired of it now, the number of summonses against these people," said Judge Kilrane.

Sweeney said the court wouldn't be seeing him again and that he wasn't going to get into any more trouble.

"You've told me that about 20 times already," remarked Judge Kilrane.

Sweeney and his brother, Michael of Old Bundoran Road were before the court on adjourned charges of assaulting each other at Ballytivnan on April 26th 2011 and at Old Bundoran Road on April 21st.

Mr. Tom MacSharry, solicitor (defending), pleaded that both men, who married to two sisters, were getting on well since.

Judge Kilrane adjourned all matters to April 25th next.
