Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

A WOMAN who stole all the in­gre­di­ents for a ro­man­tic Valen­tine’s Day from a lo­cal shop said that she had ‘no rec­ol­lec­tion’ of the in­ci­dent when she ap­peared be­fore the district court last week.

Anne Man­gan (53) of 62 Wafer Street, En­nis­cor­thy, was charged with steal­ing Valen­tine’s Bal­loons val­ued at €1.50, Valen­tine’s nap­kins val­ued at €1.50, two boxes of Tof­fifee val­ued at €1.50 each and two boxes of Terry’s All Gold, also val­ued at €1.50 each, at Dealz in Mar­ket Square on Fe­bru­ary 12 of last year. She was also charged with fail­ure to ap­pear at Gorey District Court on De­cem­ber 7 last.

Man­gan pleaded guilty to the charges and so­lic­i­tor David Tarrant said that his client had ‘no rec­ol­lec­tion of the in­ci­dent’ as she had ‘drink taken on the day’. He added, how­ever, that she ac­cepted the charge and wished to apol­o­gise for her ac­tions.

Upon hear­ing all the ev­i­dence, Judge Chea­tle agreed to give Man­gan the ben­e­fit of the pro­ba­tion act in ex­change for a €25 do­na­tion
