Tipperary courts: Roscrea man hit victim on the hand and arm with a hurley

Nenagh Court was told a Roscrea man hit his victim with a hurley

A man struck another man on the arm with a hurley, Nenagh Court was told.

Martin Pratt of 5 Ashbury View, Roscrea, pleaded to assault at Rosemary Square, Roscrea, on December 3, 2016.

The court heard there were “ongoing issues” between both parties and the victim was walking in the square when he was hit by Mr Pratt on the arm and hand.

The victim was bruised but there were no fractures, the court heard.

Judge Elizabeth MacGrath ordered a probation report for March 15, 2019, and said she would not finalise the matter as a victim personal statement was required and that could be handed in on the same date.
