King is originally from the Mayo town but has worked in Stockport in England since 2013 and he returned to face the courts regarding the incident that took place in the early hours of January 4, 2014.

Inspector Gary Walsh told the court that the found King intoxicated and trying the get into an apartment.

When asked his name he said it was Enda Kenny. He continued to become verbally abusive and then urinated in front of them.

He was arrested and brought to the garda station in Westport.

King said he had been drinking on the night and he could not remember much of what had happened.

King, who had eight previous convictions, has not come to the attention of the police in the UK or the gardai since the incident according to Inspector Walsh.

Judge Mary Devins said that if King agreed to donate €500 to a fund to build a memorial to the late Garda Tony Golden in Ballina she would issue the Probation Act.
