A man told Sligo District Court that he drank two bot­tles of black rum and was so sick he went to hospi­tal but said he got fed up wait­ing to be seen there.

An­thony Casey of 15 Hanly Av­enue, Boyle was sum­moned for be­ing in­tox­i­cated at Sligo Univer­sity Hospi­tal on Septem­ber 5 th last and with en­gag­ing in threat­en­ing, abu­sive and in­sult­ing be­hav­iour at Bridge Street in Boyle on Fe­bru­ary 1st 2017.

In­spec­tor Paul Kil­coyne said the de­fen­dant had two pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions. Casey ad­mit­ted to Judge Kevin Kil­rane that he had a drink prob­lem. He said he had met a guy in Sligo who had just been re­leased from prison and went drink­ing with him.

He drank two bot­tles of black rum and got so sick he went to the hospi­tal.

“I got fed up wait­ing to be seen and I lost my tem­per. Af­ter that I had a black­out,” he said.

Judge Kil­rane warned the de­fen­dant al­co­hol was go­ing to kill him.

“It’s a won­der you are with us at all af­ter two bot­tles of rum,” the Judge told him.

Mr Ed­die Henry, solic­i­tor (de­fend­ing) pleaded that Casey had been at­tend­ing his GP and a psy­chi­a­trist.

Judge Kil­rane fined Casey €200 on the Boyle charge and took the other of­fence into con­sid­er­a­tion.
