Bray People - - NEWS FOCUS -

A WICKLOW town man who is ‘more messy than any­thing else’ when drunk was fined €25 when he ap­peared be­fore Judge David Kennedy at last Tues­day’s sit­ting of Wicklow District Court.

Paul Flynn (47), White­house, The Mur­ragh, Wicklow was charged with be­ing in­tox­i­cated in a pub­lic place at Abbey Street, Wicklow on Septem­ber 7, 2012.

The court heard Flynn was seen at 8pm out­side the AIB in Wicklow town and he was ‘ barely able to stand up’. The court heard he had cans of beer with him.

Act­ing for Flynn so­lic­i­tor Der­mot Hickey said Flynn was known to the court and was due back be­fore the court on a sim­i­lar charge on March 12.

‘Are you do­ing any­thing about your drink­ing?’ asked Judge Kennedy and Flynn said he was in con­tact with the proba- tion ser­vice.

How­ever pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer An­drew Ni Mhurchu said Flynn had de­clined treat­ment and said his drink­ing is ‘en­trenched’.

In­spec­tor Mary Aldridge said when Flynn was sober he was ‘very af­fa­ble’ and said when drunk he doesn’t gen­er­ally cause trou­ble. ‘He’s more messy than any­thing else’, she said.

Judge Kennedy then im­posed a fine of €25.
