Bray People - - News Focus -

‘I DON’T want to see you be­fore this court again, Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan warned a Bray man at last week’s District Court.

Michael Cullen of 5 Saint Peters Road, ap­peared in court on a charge of be­ing drunk in pub­lic on the Strand Road on Novem­ber 30.

Garda John Thomp- son of Bray Garda Sta­tion told the court at 2.40 a.m. he came across Cullen who was very un­steady on his feet and had a strong smell of drink from his breath on the Strand Road.

Judge Con­nel­lan asked Cullen how he got him­self in such a state. ‘I drank too much be­cause I had a bad day.’

Judge Con­nel­lan warned that he hoped Cullen didn’t al­ways drink so much when he had a bad day. The Judge dis­missed the charge with the ben­e­fit of the pro­ba­tion act and told Cullen he didn’t want to see him be­fore the court again.
