    Serves her right, stupid gowl.

    Why is it important that she is grandmother? Sympathy plea?

    Attention seeking.

    I wonder is she still smirking in Cork Prison. I'd say the weekend will have knocked a bit of sense into her.

    Deserves everything she gets especially as a lot of these restrictions were designed to protect the elderly.

    Probably another naive soul that ventured a bit far down the FB Covid conspiracy hole.

    Plenty went the same way. I have some sympathy for those that distinguish fact from fiction.

    I see you take the "rules are for some and not for others" approach.

    She was jailed for Contempt of Court not for not wearing a mask.

    She was jailed for Contempt of Court not for not wearing a mask.

    She was jailed for contempt of court for not wearing a mask.

    I hope she didn't see what happened to Fran in Love/Hate when he got locked up :eek:

    Contempt of court


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,331 ✭✭✭✭ Hello 2D Person Below


    My granny is still in her home.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,882 ✭✭✭ Smee_Again


    No sympathy for her, she sounds like a complete arsehole who was going out of her way to break the law.


  • Registered Users Posts: 745 ✭✭✭ ClosedAccountFuzzy


    Do we have to add these terms like “grandmother” as if that somehow changes everything.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,321 ✭✭✭✭ Maryanne84


    People like her really pee me off. The vast majority of people are doing their best to get on top of Covid and then morons like her throw it in their faces. Many of us lost family members and other loved ones during the pandemic and were not able to say goodbye or attend funerals. She deserves flogging, not jail. Sorry if that seems a bit harsh, but I’m feeling emotional after losing a dear friend. Not Covid related, thankfully, but not being able to visit her in hospital was so, so hard.


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,803 ✭✭✭✭ Annasopra


    These are the consequences of her actions including abusing shop workers and contempt of court. Her own fault and just because she has Grandchildren doesnt mean she deserves sympathy.

    Apparently a "normal" woman is a busty blonde sexy page 3 model who wears make-up, short skirts and red lipsticks and has pouty lips.  Who knew. 👀😏

    What has the fact she is a granny got to do with it? Are any of us who have grandchildren subject to more relaxed laws than everyone else?

    Aren't we meant to be protecting granny not sticking her in a confined high risk location.
    I don't know how it's come to this all she needed was a reasonable excuse, no cert or anything like that is required.

    She was jailed for Contempt of Court not for not wearing a mask.
    From article
    She was found guilty of the offence of not wearing a mask in breach of the Covid-19 public health regulations.
    but also
    remanded in custody for three days for repeatedly refusing to wear a mask when she appeared before the court.

    She’s obviously spent too much time hanging out on similar sites to you.

    She’s a 66 year old woman. My grandmother was successfully running two businesses at that age, doing yoga and hitting the gym 3 days a week and jetting off to the canaries.

    Convenient and patronising nonsense in this thread.

    Age is no excuse.

    Ah biko you never fully read the articles do you? She hasn’t been sentenced for that offence yet.
    Margaret Buttimer (66) – who was previously described before Clonakilty District Court as “an enigma” – will be sentenced on Monday after being remanded in custody for three days for repeatedly refusing to wear a mask when she appeared before the court.

    "Citizen refuses to wear a facemask in contravention of public health regulations and has been accused of contempt of court".

    Fixed.

    The store manager mentioned in the article works in my shop now, one of my colleagues asked him about this and apparently she went into several shops in clonakilty pulling this no mask nonsense and verbally abusing staff.
