Two-Mile-Borris man told to pay €500 to poor box

Thurles District Court

A Two-Mile-Borris man found in possession of cocaine, was directed to pay €500 to the Thurles district court poor box.

Conor Scanlon, of The Beckett, Glencarrig, Two-Mile-Borris, Thurles, was found to be in possession of €315 worth of cocaine, at Hazelwood Grove, Dublin road, Thurles, on April 19, 2020. Garda Mark Culllnane charged Mr Scanlon with unlawful possession of drugs.

Solicitor JJ Fitzgerald said Mr Scanlon, 27, had had money difficulties at the time, but is unlikely to come before the court again. “He is endeavouring to do the right thing,” said Mr Fitzgerald. “It was a once off. He has learned his lesson.”

Judge Elizabeth MacGrath directed that Mr Scanlon enter into a peace bond for 12 months, and that he pay €500 to the court poor box by January 25 next to avoid a conviction.
