Bench warrant for Abbeyleix man

A bench warrant was last week issued for an Abbeyleix man who failed to appear in court.

Sean McHugh, 8 Temperance Street, Abbeyleix, was charged with burglaries, thefts, criminal damage, affray, obstruction of a peace officer, and failure to comply.

Defence, Ms Josephine Fitzpatrick admitted the report on him “tells its own story”.

Judge Catherine Staines issued a bench warrant and said: “Can it be impressed upon his father that this young man is very much at risk.”
