Judge demands armed protection

AN OUTSPOKEN district court judge who was harangued by a man he sentenced for contempt has demanded armed protection for the defendant's next court appearance.

Richard McCann, of Aughnaskerry Drive, Cavan town, was jailed for seven days by Judge Sean MacBride for his outburst at Virginia District Court yesterday.

The court heard that Mr McCann is accused of ramming into the car of Eddie McDonagh when his wife and children were also in the vehicle.
