Man given suspended term
A man was giving a nine-month sentence suspended for two years and a €700 fine after pleading guilty to threatening behaviour towards members of the family of his former partner.
The defendant followed the party and later threw a heavy object at them. The court heard that there had been a tragic family incident and the complainant had made a statement to withdraw the matter.
Judge Brian Kennedy imposed a nine-month sentence suspended for two years, a €700 fine and a €100 bond to keep the peace.
