Gardaí were called to hotel
A 38 year-old-man who was verbally abusive to staff and members of the public at a hotel had his case adjourned for a year to see how he behaves.
Before Sligo District Court was Matthew Mulholland, Strandhill Road who admitted a charge of engaging in threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour at the Clayton Hotel on July 26 th last.
Inspector Paul Kilcoyne said Gardaí went to the hotel at 8.25pm following receipt of a report of a man who was intoxicated and was being abusive to staff the public. He was also refusing to leave the premises.
He made attempts to strike out several times and was arrested. He was found to be in possession of €50 worth of cannabis which was for his own use, said the Inspector.
Mr John Anderson, solicitor (defending) pleaded that the defendant had residential treatment in the past for alcoholism.
On the night he was in a homeless situation. He regretted his actions, added Mr Anderson.
He had one previous conviction for a road traffic matter.
Judge Kevin Kilrane said it would appear the defendant was out of his mind through a combination of alcohol and drugs.
