Owner to pay €150 to charity after eleven people found after-hours in bar

September 22, 2018

The owner of a West Donegal bar has been ordered to pay €150 to St Vincent De Paul after a number of people were found drinking on the premises after hours.

Gardai called to the Corner Bar in Falcarragh at 11.49pm and found eleven people drinking on the premises.

Solicitor John Canon told Falcarragh District Court that the people were waiting on taxis to arrive to take them home.

Mr Canon said the owner of the bar, Ms Sally Whoriskey had a clean record and had no previous convictions for after-hours drinking under Section 18 of the Intoxicating Liquor Act.

Judge Paul Kelly said he would strike the matter out if Ms Whoriskey made a donation of €150 to St Vincent De Paul.
