WOMAN WAS 'UNABLE TO MIND HERSELF'
A WOMAN who was 'unable to mind herself' was arrested by Gardai for intoxication the district court heard last week.
Caroline Fitzpatrick (45), 5 Patrick Tierney Crescent, Dundalk, admitted the charge before Judge Flann Brennan.
The court heard how on March 24, Fitzpatrick was at the Crescent and was 'unsteady on her feet and unable to mind herself' and was arrested for public order.
She has previous convictions for theft and public order.
Solicitor Niall Lavery said his client had become 'very upset about a missed appointment concerning her children' and was annoyed it didn't happen. He asked for leniency from the judge as 'any fine imposed would have a considerable impact on her life'.
Judge Brennan fined the defendant €75.
