Concrete block was put through window of Cork pub, court hears

Concrete block was put through window of Cork pub, court hears

A concrete block was thrown through the window of a Cork City centre pub in the course of a burglary, it was alleged today.

It was also alleged that the culprit did some drinking when he was in the pub in the early hours of the morning and took a few bottles of spirits with him when he left.

Rodney Haynes, aged 50, who is living at Cork Simon Community, was arrested and brought before Cork District Court today.

He applied for bail, but Judge Mary Cashin remanded him in custody until January 21 to allow time for the prosecution to obtain instructions from the Director Department of Public Prosecutions.

Garda Mairéad O’Sullivan said theblock was thrown in the early hours of November 8, 2019, when the pub was unoccupied.

As well as damage caused by the block, Garda O’Sullivan alleged, further damage was caused inside.

It was alleged that CCTV footage showed a man drinking in the premises and taking alcohol with him when he left.

Garda O’Sullivan’s objection to bail was based on the seriousness of the charge and garda concerns that Mr Haynes would not show up in court if granted bail.

Frank Buttimer, solicitor, said Mr Haynes had a drink problem but that this had stabilised recently and, after a period spent living at home, he was now being accommodated at Simon.

Sgt Gearóid Davis asked if the defendant’s drink problem persisted. Mr Haynes replied: “I am seeking help at the moment. I will obey any court conditions if I am given bail.”

Judge Cashin said Mr Haynes’ housing was subject to him not being drunk.

“I have no evidence he has done anything to ensure that,” she said. “It is quite a serious charge.”

Mr Haynes is charged with burglary at The Linen Weaver, Carey’s Lane, Cork. The charge states that, on November 18, he entered the building as a trespasser and committed the offence of theft.

The second charge under the Criminal Damage Act is one of causing damage to five electronic cash registers inside the premises to the value of €225, and damage to glazing of €625.

Daughter and mother used to be ‘best of friends’, court hears

Daughter and mother used to be ‘best of friends’, court hears

The breakdown of a mother-daughter relationship resulted in a court case yesterday where the mother changed the locks on her door and the daughter set up temporary accommodation outside the house.

The mother said at in camera hearing of Cork District Court that she was now in fear of her daughter every time she walked out her front door.

The adult daughter said the complainant had nothing to fear from her and that they had been best of friends before this occurred.

Defence solicitor Diane Hallahan argued that the case should have been dismissed because the strongest part of the complaint was the mother’s feeling that “I imagine she [her daughter] will say something”.

Garda Mary-Jane Somers, who investigated the case, testified that the complainant was in fear when she made the complaint.

The defendant said: “She is not in fear. Me and my mam were the best of friends.”

She said she put the temporary accommodation outside her mother’s home because her mother changed the locks and this left her with nowhere to stay.

The complainant said her daughter could live a lot of different places, including with her father , but that she (the complainant) had no place else to live.

Judge Mary Cashin said the defendant should move her temporary dwelling away from her mother’s property.

Judge Cashin said the manner in which the temporary dwelling was set up was not acceptable.

“It is not acceptable. It is a form of intimidation,” she said. “That was enough to put your mother in fear.”

The judge found her guilty of breaching the safety order by putting her mother in fear.

However, Judge Cashin adjourned sentencing for three months for the defendant to move and live somewhere else. The judge said she would try to leave her without a conviction but that she would have to move.

She said it was very sad to see mother and daughter in court in a case like this.

Judge Cashin said that, in fairness to both parties, they had been very honest in their evidence.
