Got too drunk in Moyvane

A MAN who got too drunk at a function in Moyavne in April and had to be arrested for his own safety was fined €100 by Judge Mary Larkin at Listowel District Court on Wednesday.

James Fitzgerald (26), Lower Aughrim, Moyvane, was found in an extremely intoxicated condition by gardaí in the village on April 8 last year.

He pleaded guilty to a charge of being drunk in public to the extent of being a danger to himself and to others.

His solicitor Helena O'Carroll told the court that he had attended a function on the night and that he had too much to drink, but added that he wasn't causing trouble for gardaí.
