Youths who disturbed meeting told they could do the catering for Tallaght Garda Station Christmas party
By Brendan Grehan
TWO YOUTHS who disturbed a community meeting found themselves before Tallaght District Court.
Judge Patrick Clyne heard that Keith McCarthy and David Moran had disrupted the meeting at St Aongus Community Centre in Tallaght.
McCarthy, aged 22, with an address at Castle Park Estate, Tallaght, and Moran, aged 19, with an address at Tymon North Road, Tallaght, pleaded guilty to engaging in threatening and abusive behaviour and failing to comply with garda directions at St Aongus Community Centre, Tallaght, on October 13, 2014.
Sergeant Eithne Madden told the court that on the above date there had been a community meeting in the centre. She said McCarthy and Moran were in the hall and had disrupted the meeting by shouting.
Their solicitor, Michael Hennessy, told Judge Clyne that his clients had been protesting at the meeting.
He said Moran was “a fine athlete whose last job was mending fences, which is what he is doing today.” He said both defendants had no previous convictions.
Judge Clyne commented that he could get McCarthy and Moran “to do the catering for the Tallaght Garda Station Christmas party”.
He dismissed the case on its merits.
