2 mile exclusion zone for former Priest

Scartaglin man and former priest, Neil Horan has been banned from entering a two-mile zone around the venue for the Epsom Derby. Neil Horan gave an undertaking at a high court hearing in London today that he would not enter a 2-mile exclusion zone around the Epsom Downs racecourse between 6am tomorrow and 11pm on Saturday. Epsom Downs racecourse had launched injunction proceedings against Neil Horan in the High Court in England. The Scartaglin man hit world headlines when he leapt on the race leader in the Olympic men’s marathon in Athens last year and when he ran on to the track during the British Grand Prix in Silverstone in 2003. The Judge was told by the Counsel for the racecourse that Mr Horan had given an undertaking that he would not enter the exclusion zone as sought by the racecourse. Counsel for the racecourse, Nicholas De Marco, said his client was prepared to accept Mr Horan`s undertaking. Neil Horan who represented himself at the hearing was wearing his customary kilt, Irish green waistcoat and green knee-high socks. Mr Horan, who says he is highlighting the second coming of Christ, told the Judge, that he had already vowed never to break the law again.
