A man who attacked a car and threatened to burn the owners out of their house has been fined €750 at court.

PJ Crossan was charged with criminal damage, threatening to damage property and engaging in threatening and abusive behaviour.

The incidents happened at Lower Mount Marian in Milford on September 3rd, 2017.

It was alleged that Crossan, of 4 Lough Road in Milford threatened a couple at their home.

The couple’s car had its windscreen smashed later that evening and Crossan was arrested the following day.

Solicitor for the accused, Patsy Gallagher, said there had been an ongoing dispute between the two parties.

He added that his client had issues with alcohol and Gardai said that Crossan had been intoxicated on the night.

Judge Paul Kelly Crossan should be very grateful to Gadai for their attitude in the case.

He fined the accused €250 on each of the three charges.

However, he warned that if there is a further “eruption of the feud” he would take a very different view than just a fine.
