A Clonmel man has pleaded guilty at Clonmel Circuit Court to possessing a fire arm and shotgun cartridges without a firearm certificate.
Paul Ahearn of 113 Bianconi Drive, Clonmel pleaded guilty to committing both offences in county Tipperary on November 5 last year when he was arraigned at a recent sitting of the court.
Mr Ahearn’s barrister requested the case be adjourned for the production of a Probation Service report on his client, whom he pointed out hadn’t any previous convictions.
Judge Patrick Meghan adjourned the case to the December 3 sitting of Clonmel Circuit Court for the production of a Probation Report and remanded the defendant on continuing bail.
