« BackMan admits throwing firecracker out car window was stupid thing to do

Killorglin Courthouse


A 25-year-old Killorglin man who threw a firecracker out of a car window did it as a prank, the local district court was told.

Barry Horgan of Tinahalla, Killorglin admitted throwing an ignited firework at a person in Drumavalla on Halloween night last year.

His solicitor Paul O’Donoghue said his client accepted it was a stupid thing to do but no one was injured.

Judge James O’Connor adjourned the matter until December and said he may consider the Probation Act if Mr Horgan makes a donation of €750 to the court poor box.
