Scandalous result!
Ah In fairness nobody would have gone to prison for this offence, unless they were already out on license. In the grand scheme we can’t imprison every scum bag that gets into a fight on a Saturday night.

Imprison some percentage and the fight frequency should drop. And, make an example of these high-profile goons, that'll send a message.

Ireland is way too easygoing on its criminals.

It was mentioned on Virgin Media news that the verdict was going to be appealed.

The newly elected councillor isn't going to step down from the policing committee either.

Not arguing with you but on rte they reported the opposite.

That's true but every scumbag isn't supposed to include Councillors who are on policing committees. If Kerry CoCo allow him to keep that position, it'll be an utter disgrace.

Jackie Jr has a fair thick looking head on him, he didn't seem to be too upset about having a conviction to his name now.

Hope the injured party will get some compensation for the assault he suffered.

A fair bit of in-breeding in that family by the looks of them

No it shouldn’t include them as I’d expect better of public representatives, however a court can’t start treating people differently because of who they are. The council certainly shouldn’t have him on the committee but I’ve no doubt that they all just fall into line with the family.

Was Wharton's chipper being banished out the road to Templenoe anything as a result of this case?

Good day for suspended sentences for the Kingdom brethren. Lets hope their lenient sentences will change their ways.

The most shocking consequence of the whole incident is the that the visiting injured party's relations according to the Virgin Media report no longer feel comfortable in the locality.
