Bray People - - In Profile -

AN 18-year-old Shankill man was given a sus­pended sen­tence for telling Gar­dai to f***k off.

Craig McDon­ald of 17 Rath­sal­lagh Drive was stopped by Gar­dai at Rath­sal­lagh Drive on July 12.

Gar­dai had given chase to a man across the green area close to Rath­sal­lagh Drive a few min­utes be­fore they met McDon­ald.

When they stopped him he said, ‘You can f*** off I haven’t done any­thing.

The court was told that McDon­ald has a drink prob­lem and has been be­fore the court be­fore. Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan told McDon­ald that he didn’t like the lan­guage used or his be­hav­iour to­wards the Gar­daí.

He gave McDon­ald three months in de­ten­tion sus­pended for one year pro­vided McDon­ald keeps the peace for that year.
