A Carnew man who was charged with the unlawful possession of drugs has been described in court as ‘more of a nuisance than a danger to people’.
Noel Hogan of 28 Emmet Place was charged with having the drugs, namely €20 of cannabis, on October 29, 2016 at his home address.
Solicitor Pauric Hyland said that his client was of no fixed abode but had an address at the family home in Carnew.
He said that a probation report would be helpful to the court.
Judge Kennedy ordered such a report and adjourned the matter to February 14, 2018.
