40 year Noel Glynn of 96A Rosewood, Ballincollig, Cork had previously pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine for the purpose of sale or supply at Ballycasheen, Killarney on August 30th 2013. Tralee Circuit Court heard Gardai stopped and searched a car being driven by the accused and found 3 bags of cocaine worth 880 euro in a motorcycle helmet. Mr Glynn, who has 39 previous convictions, made full admissions to Gardai and was described as a small time operator who had a very difficult background. The court heard the accused had sought help from an addiction counsellor. Judge Tom O’Donnell said cocaine is highly addictive and is one of the most incidious drugs available but he took Mr Glynn’s early guilty plea into consideration. He said he would give the accused a chance to prove himself. He handed down a two year sentence which was suspended for three years.
