Sgt Brian Jacob said that three sheep were injured in the incident though none had to be put down as a result.

He said it was more a case of worrying sheep than injuring them.

Sgt Jacob also said he was not applying for a ban on dog ownership in either case.

Fines of €200 each were imposed by Judge Desmond Zaidan.
