Tipperary man caught with cannabis is ordered to pay money to charity

A man caught in possession of approximately €50 worth of cannabis has been ordered by Nenagh District Court to pay €300 to the charity Little Blue Heroes.

Kieran Fogarty of 30 Cill Phadraig, Newport, pleaded guilty to having the drug for his own personal use at Friar Street, Nenagh, on December 4, 2020.

His solicitor Johnny Spencer said Mr Fogarty, who had no previous convictions, had indicated that he was not too eager to engage in the Justice Reparation Scheme, despite it being pointed out to him that a criminal conviction could have implications for any future travel plans or future employment prospects.

Judge Andrew Cody said if Mr Fogarty made the contribution by October 27 he would not impose a conviction.
