Tipperary man not wearing shirt or shoes while attempting to hit nightclub security staff

Nenagh Court was told that man had no shirt or shoes on while attempting to hit nightclub security staff with a leather belt

A man who was aggressive towards the staff at a Nenagh nightclub failed to engage with the chance of accepting an adult caution for the incident, Nenagh Court was told.

Kelum Harrington of Monsea, Ballycommon, was convicted in his absence of threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour at Kenyon Street, Nenagh, on December 12, 2018.

The court heard that the gardaí found Mr Harrington, who was drunk, attempting to hit the security staff with a black leather belt. He was not wearing a shirt or shoes.

The court heard there had been an attempt to have Mr Harrington dealt with by way of an adult caution but he had not engaged with the process.

“He didn’t take that opportunity,” said Judge Elizabeth MacGrath, fining Mr Harrington €150.

She fixed recognizance in his own bond of €250.
