The judge should be forced to serve them himself next time and do security on his own when it all goes tits up.

They were all fresh from attending a human rights course?

I'm all for adult education, but maybe if they had attended school full time as kids (and if they further insisted that their own children did the same), then more travellers would have jobs enabling them to be economically self sufficient.

This is turn would tackle the feelings of resentment that many in the settled community have toward travellers, which would IMO lead to less discrimination being experienced by travellers.

If the judge (and the equality commission) really wanted to do something to help these travellers, they could have put a stipulation on the awards, that they be used exclusively for the purposes of education and health of their children ..... to give them a chance to break the cycle of poverty, high mortality and general lack of prospects.

Instead the money is likely to go on booze, quad-bikes and lavish wedding dresses for 16 year olds

Quote:
A TWO-AND-a half year old boy who fell while climbing on wooden pallets behind a crèche, was awarded more than €46,000 damages in the Circuit Civil Court.

Barrister Stephanie O’Connell told the court that little Shay Lawless was “unattended” in the back garden of Cherryfield Nursery and Montessori when the accident happened.

She told Judge Pat Quinn that on 27 May 2016, Shay had climbed up onto two stacked delivery pallets in the garden and fell, striking his forehead on the edge of one of the pallets.

Shay’s mother, Bianca Wilson, stated in a sworn affidavit that Shay, who is now aged four, had suffered a laceration above his right eyebrow. He had been taken to the emergency department of the Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Dublin, for examination and treatment.

Shay, who sued Amy Chester, trading as Cherryfield Nursery and Montessori, Walkinstown, Dublin, through his mother Bianca Wilson, of White Hall Square, Crumlin, Dublin, had his wound washed and closed with seri-strips.

O’Connell, who appeared with Tracey Solicitors for Shay, said he had been left with a three centimetre scar which Wilson had been told would fade with time. On 26 May last, Shay had been reviewed by Dr John Simon on behalf of the Injuries Board which had assessed damages at €35,000 together with expenses of €1,133.

She told Judge Quinn today that the €35,000 had been put before the Circuit Court President, Justice Raymond Groarke, last month for his approval but he considered the offer light and adjourned the application.

O’Connell said the crèche had since returned with an offer of €45,000 damages together with the €1,133 expenses and she was recommending the overall offer to the court. Judge Quinn approved the offer.

And then we have the Romanian guy who was breathalyzed found to be over the limit goes to the supreme court and gets away with it because the ticket wasn't in Irish.
Well lost his case but who is footing the bill.

Probably him? There's about 1000 cases that were awaiting the verdict too.

What does being Romanian have to do with it?

He's just looking for a way out of paying it, I probably speak the same level of Irish as him and I'd probably do the same (well not likely, but I'd be happy to exploit a perceived loophole in legislation).

No “please don’t let your 15 year old use a swing designed for a toddler” results in a €975,000 payout.

It’s very sad and unfortunate buts it’s absolutely nobody else’s fault and nobody has been negligible.

Because without fault, why should, the Caravan park in this instance, be found guilty and liable to pay compensation.

I've long argued for no fault compensation on here, but that would mean cutting out the lawyers, so they don't like it.

A very good example for no fault compensation.

What lawyers have argued against it?

You think it's lawyers and not the insurance industry who'd balk at it?

Albeit I would say we'd need to gut PIAB if it was brought in. They're fúcking useless.

This is a goody....

Tallaght boy terrorizes the staff of a pub while pointing a replica Uzi at them and claiming to be in the 'Ra. Gets the living shit kicked out of him by 3 lads having a pint and yet the judge grants bail in spite of Garda objections and states that the accused has a presumption of innocence...!!! surely this cnut is bang to rights. Christ in any other Country he had a very high chance of being blown away by the off duty detective who was on the premises.....the mind boggles at these people.

He's on the fecking CCTV, AJ, and therefore WILL be found guilty, and therefore a prime candidate to skip to the UK to avoid being gaoled. The guy was carrying a replica Uzi FFS !.

Bail could initially only be refused for flight risks.

It was later extended to "serious offences" being anticipated whilst at liberty by way of a constitutional referendum.

It does not matter how guilty a person is if they are seeking bail. They remain innocent until conviction.

Is the judge letting him out and telling the guards to whack him?

:roll:

https://independent.ie/irish-news/court ... 63217.html

“I’m not disposed to having this man locked up any further. I don't want to see Mr O'Brien unnecessarily locked up. I think everyone is entitled to see the new year as a new year.”

“A condition of the suspended jail term is that O'Brien has no direct contact with children, after a report which stated that he has a high risk of sexual reoffending”

I have to say I’m pretty confused by the judge.

I think he wants the Gardai to make it that the media don't find out where the guy moves to.

I'm not sure how they can actually do that.

How does a cretin like this not see the inside of a jail cell? Death threats against an elected representative and completely unrepentant despite a guilty plea?

Maybe too much of taxpayer money to feed the plum.

And, no doubt , AJ will defend the independence of the judiciary when it comes to sentencing until one of these cúnts actually follows through on what they say.

Suspended sentence for that is hardly a let off. Keep it up and he'll be in prison. Doubt that fat fúck would last long in the Joy.

Quote:
An inept criminal who agreed to stay away from a man whose home he has repeatedly broken into has had a 12 month suspended sentence activated after being found hiding behind a cardboard box in the same injured party's storage room last April.

Christopher McCarthy (29), of no fixed abode but with an address at Ashbury, Roscrea, Co Tipperary, was described as a “homeless traveller” and one of 18 children with a long standing alcohol problem and 133 previous convictions.

He had pleaded guilty at Nenagh Circuit Criminal Court to criminal damage and obstruction of a garda at the home of a Mr Cole, Grove Villas in Roscrea and was jailed for five years. He had broken into the same injured party's home on two previous occasions in May 2013.

McCarthy successfully appealed his sentence in June 2016 and was accordingly given a three year sentence with the final 12 months suspended on condition he behave, stay away from the injured party as well as Green Street, Grove Street and the Crescent in Roscrea. He had undertaken to be so bound.

However, McCarthy had his 12 month suspended sentence activated in full today after entering the same injured party's home last April where he was found hiding behind a cardboard box by gardaí.

The original sentencing judge noted that it was McCarthy's first time in the Circuit Court for sentence and that he was “not a very clever criminal”. He also noted that McCarthy was on lock up for 23 hours a day while in custody on remand, that he was genuine in his contrition and genuine in having some kind of insight into the suffering he had caused to the injured party Mr. Cole.

The sentencing judge was mindful of what the gardaí had said about McCarthy namely, that he was somebody who caused the gardaí no trouble except when he was drinking. The prosecuting garda had given evidence to the effect that McCarthy had a very difficult background and wrongly believed that he was still welcome at his family home. However there was no room for him there.

Activating his suspended sentence today, Mr Justice George Birmingham said it was “absolutely clear” that the chance that had been given to McCarthy had not been taken. He said McCarthy's breach of the conditions was “egregious” involving the same injured party and entry into the same dwelling.

Mr Justice Birmingham, who sat with Mr Justice John Edwards and Mr Justice John Hedigan, said the Court of Appeal was “left with no option” but to activate McCarthy's suspended sentence and “activate it in full”.

It was backdated to October 20, the date on which an eight month District Court sentence for trespass, the triggering offence, expired.
