A man currently serving a prison sentence for an aggravated burglary in which he broke into a house where children were sleeping, armed with a lump hammer, appeared via video-link before Judge John Cheatle at Wexford District Court on drugs charges.

The court heard that when gardaí arrived at the home of Shane O’Grady (29) of Haresmeade, Foulksmills, on May 22 of last year, he was sitting in a Portakabin to the rear of the property with three lines of speed racked out in front of him, as well as cocaine being present on the premises.

O’Grady told gardaí that the drugs were for his own use and when he appeared before Judge Cheatle charged with unlawful possession of cocaine and amphetamine it was from the Midlands Prison, where solicitor Colette Culleton told the court he’s been since the summer, serving a three year sentence for aggravated burglary. Ms Culleton said that her client was doing very well in prison and pointed out that these were the last matters he had before the court. 

Sgt Victor Isdell told the judge that O’Grady had 35 previous convictions and one previous for drugs dating from 2012.
