Gardaí called to hotel to deal with drunk Tipperary man
Dean Cashman (21) of 23 Millenium Place, Cahir, received the fine after pleading guilty to being drunk and a danger to himself and others at Cahir House Hotel, The Square, Cahir, on March 13, 2019.
Sgt. Carol O'Leary said gardaí were called to the hotel to deal with Mr Cashman at 12.30am on this date.
A fixed charge notice fine was issued to him but it wasn't paid.
Mr Cashman had two previous convictions for Misuse of Drugs Act offences and one for causing criminal damage.
Mr Morrissey said Mr Cashman's friend returned home after being away for a period of time. He went for a few drinks with him but drank too much. He apologised to the court for his behaviour.
Judge Finn asked why Mr Cashman didn't pay the fixed penalty fine and Mr Morrissey explained he hadn't the funds to do so.
The judge noted that Mr Cashman was able to afford to “get himself liquored up” that night before imposing the €200 fine.
