A young Kildare man, who was too intoxicated to speak when gardai came across him, offered to pay €500 to charity at Athy District Court on Tuesday, October 23.

Conor McNulty (21) with an address listed as 18 Ardrew Court, Athy came to the attention of gardai on November 14, 2017 at Emily Square. The court heard that the defendant was so intoxicated he couldn't even speak and does not remember the incident. He had to be removed by ambulance from the scene as he was so intoxicated at the time and could not talk or respond to gardai.

His solicitor Jackie Mc Manus said in court that her client was very apologetic.

“He had been drinking Sambuca at the time,” she said. “He does not drink now. This won't happen again.”

He has no previous convictions.

He told the court that he does not drink anymore.

“You could have harmed yourself with your excessive drinking,” Judge Desmond Zaidan said.

His solicitor asked if her client could pay a contribution to the court poor box.

Judge Desmond Zaidan said he could give €500 to the local St Bernard Sanctuary.

He gave him three weeks to pay the donation and adjourned the case until November 22 next for receipt of payment.
