A BRAY man who was sit­ting down on the side of the N11 late at night hold­ing large bot­tles of cider had missed his bus, Bray District Court heard last week.

John Con­nors, with an ad­dress of 10 Fair­green Ter­race, Green­park Road, Bray, had his charge of be­ing drunk in pub­lic dis­missed with the ben­e­fit of the pro­ba­tion act.

‘How did you get your­self in this con­di­tion,’ asked Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan. Con­nors told him that he had de­cided to walk home from the pub when he missed his bus.

Judge Con­nel­lan pointed out that for the price of the cider he could have paid for a taxi. ‘They wouldn’t give me a re­fund,’ ex­plained Con­nors.

‘You should be full of sweet­ness and light when ap­pre­hended by the Gar­daí,’ re­marked Judge Con­nel­lan when he heard that Con­nors was un­co­op­er­a­tive and ag­gres­sive.
