Kerry footballer Aidan O’Mahony demonstrated his handling ability in a courtroom yesterday during his garda duties in Cork.
The inter-county star was present in Cork District Court when a chair was flung within the courtroom where his quick reflexes were called into action.
O’Mahony was in the course of his duties of keeping order when the defendant at the time Jason Landy, aged 25, of no fixed address, stood up and shouted obscenities before grabbing one of the chairs nearby and hurling it in the air.
The Kerry native put his hands out to block the chair before grabbing it, before the gardai present escorted Landy back to his holding cell.
Judge Leo Malone remanded the accused in custody to appear by video link from prison today.
