He is a troubled young man, but he realises the difficulty he is in.”McEleney who has ten previous convictions for assault and criminal damage from 2013 and 2014, was fined €250 and given four months to pay by Judge Paul Kelly who advised the defendant to ‘grow up a bit’Man who was ‘frothing at the mouth’ to Gardai told to ‘grow up a bit’ was last modified: September 8th, 2017 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Judge Paul KellyletterkennyLetterkenny District CourtPaul McEleneylast_img
