Could face jail if he breaches order again

A man who breached a barring order obtained by his mother by going to her house drunk roaring and shouting has been warned by the district judge that if he breaches the order again he will go to prison.

A man who breached a barring order obtained by his mother by going to her house drunk roaring and shouting has been warned by the district judge that if he breaches the order again he will go to prison.

Edward Cash, 30 Mount Finn, Urlingford, breached the barring order on November 30, 2013.

Inspector Aidan Farrelly gave evidence that Cash came home to his mother’s house in an intoxicated state. Cash got into the house himself and his mother discovered him.

Cash failed to turn up previously to face the charge and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. He was arrested by Garda Michael Kenneally the day before last Thursday’s court.

Garda Kenneally told the court that Cash’s mother said he that on the night of the offence Cash was roaring and shouting, and was “banging the press doors”.

Cash had no previous convictions.

Defence, Mr Philip Meagher said that Cash raised his voice, but he had not made any approach towards his mother, nor had he threatened her.

Garda Kenneally said he accepted that.

Mr Meagher told the court that arrangements have now been made for Cash to live in Urlingford.

Judge Catherine Staines put the matter back to March 12 next year for a probation report.

The judge warned Cash: “There is still a barring order in existence. You will go to prison if you come before this court again for a breach of that order. You’d better behave yourself.”
