Garda Inspector Paul Gallagher told the court the incident happened on July 1st last year at Main Street in Falcarragh.

He gave evidence of how Doohan walked past the Garda station before throwing the bottle of Jameson whiskey through the window.

Gardai viewed CCTV footage and Doohan was identified carrying out the incident and he later made full admissions.

Judge Éiteáin Cunningham adjourned the case until September 20th next to allow for a probation and welfare report on Doohan.
