And finally… last orders

A man who drunkenly banged on the doors of a closed courthouse after mistaking it for a pub has been fined.

Gareth Murphy, 47, was discovered by patrolling gardaí and arrested for being intoxicated in a public place.

Mr Murphy’s solicitor told Clonakilty District Court that his client had forgotten his jacket in a pub and was trying to return for it.

Mr Murphy apologised to the court and Judge James McNulty imposed a €250 fine, the Irish Examiner reports.
