A woman who tried to bring drugs into the local prison to her son has been given a suspended sentence.
Inspector Aidan Farrelly gave evidence that Sally Joyce, 12 St Joseph’s Park, Dunsink, Finglas, was detected at the Midlands Prison on June 8 this year, with 30 D10 tablets and a mobile phone battery.
She was visiting her son in prison on the day.
The accused had previous convictions.
Defence, Ms Louise Troy said her client had suffered an extremely difficult life, and had lost a sister within the last year.
Ms Troy also said her client’s daughter had been rendered homeless recently, and this was a very difficult period in Joyce’s life.
Judge Catherine Staines imposed a six-month sentence, suspended for two years.
