Nenagh Court: Tipperary man 'regrets' disorderly conduct during altercation with family

A Roscrea man who engaged in disorderly conduct has been given the Probation Act by Nenagh District Court.

Matthew Keane of Ayrhill, Roscrea, pleaded to the offence at Corville, Roscrea, on July 18, 2021.
The court heard that Mr Keane had been engaged in a disturbance with his family and had been reckless in his behaviour.

He eventually left the scene when asked to by gardaí.

Mr Keane’s solicitor, Pat Liston, explained to the court that there had been an altercation and that it had got “out of hand”.

He said that his client regretted what had happened.

The court heard that a fixed charge penalty notice had been sent to Mr Keane, but Mr Liston said that it had been sent to Mr Keane’s former address and when he knew about it he had attempted to pay it but the time limit had passed.

Judge Cephas Power noted that Mr Keane “seems to have made up” with his family and imposed the Probation Act as he didn’t want to “upset the family”.
