A woman was found ly­ing asleep on a round­about at Finisklin by Gar­daí af­ter they got a call from a mem­ber of the pub­lic.

Brid­get Flood (37) and her part­ner James Barry (48) of Maryville Hos­tel were both ac­cused of threat­en­ing be­hav­iour and in­tox­i­ca­tion on the Finisklin Road on 14 th Oc­to­ber. Sergeant Derek But­ler said Gar­daí found Flood ly­ing on the round­about with her legs on the road. When they woke her up, she be­came “abu­sive” and both were ar­rested.

Barry was also charged with urinating in the pa­trol car, a charge of crim­i­nal dam­age which was dropped last week. A charge of in­tox­i­ca­tion was also dropped against Flood. Ms Laura Spell­man, de­fence solic­i­tor for both, said both had lost jobs in con­struc­tion and clean­ing and were now home­less. She apol­o­gised to the court on their be­half.

Judge Kil­rane con­victed them of abu­sive be­hav­iour and fined them ¤200 each.
