A man has been fined €300 for a public order offence, following an appearance at last week’s sitting of Longford District Court.

On July 7, 2021, at 11.45pm, gardaí received reports of two males fighting on Main Street, Kenagh.

When gardaí arrived, Daniel Maguire of Aughagreagh, Ballinalee, Co Longford, was “highly intoxicated” and “a danger to himself”, the court heard.
