Man climbed onto Dart plat­form

Bray People - - NEWS -

A DUBLIN MAN who climbed onto the plat­form at Bray Sta­tion in the early hours of the morn­ing had been drink­ing, but was not drunk, ac­cord­ing to the ar­rest­ing garda.

Garda El­iz­a­beth Collins was called to the Dart Sta­tion on the morn­ing of Fe­bru­ary 12, where Ra­heny man Seán Mul­hall (30) was ar­rested for tres­pass­ing. She added that he had since apol­o­gised for the in­ci­dent.

‘I'd like to apol­o­gise to your­self, your hon­our, to the gar­dai and to the court for caus­ing an in­con­ve­nience,' said Mul- hall. ‘ That is an apol­ogy, which is of course ac­cepted, but what do you say about the event it­self ?' won­dered Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan.

Mul­hall said that it was down to ‘stu­pid­ity, and al­co­hol. I was drunk and made a stupid de­ci­sion.'

Judge Con­nel­lan asked what the man had been do­ing that night be­fore his ar­rest, to which he replied he had been drink­ing in a seafront bar un­til around 3 a.m.

‘I'm not to­tally sat­is­fied with the story,' said Judge Con­nel­lan, be­fore bind­ing Mul­hall to the peace for one year.
