He also prodded his wife’s shoulder, the court heard.
The court heard that Carroll is now renting in Wicklow.
The court also heard his pension goes mainly on rent and expenses.
Solicitor Conway O’Hara said that his client has worked hard all his life.
When he retired was at a loose end and started drinking heavily.
However he has not been drinking at all of late.
Judge William Hamill handed down a fine of € 75.
