Drunken mother can't recall telling gardai to 'f**k off'
A MOTHER of three drunkenly turned on gardai when they tried to help her cross a busy road, calling them “you f**kin pr*cks”.
Leanne Delaney (30) was clearly drunk and gardai were worried for her safety, a court heard.
Judge David McHugh imposed an eight-month sentence, suspended for two years.
The defendant, of Cherry Orchard Court in Ballyfermot, admitted before Blanchardstown District Court to public drunkenness and threatening and abusive behaviour.
Sergeant Mary Doherty said gardai were on mobile patrol at Croftwood Gardens in Clondalkin on June 8, 2014, when they came across Delaney, who was very drunk.
Sgt Doherty said Delaney was heading towards a busy road so gardai went to help her. She told them to “f**k off” and called them “you f**kin’ pr*cks”.
Delaney also admitted to stealing cosmetics, worth €112, from Boots, Liffey Valley, on November 2, 2014. Defence solicitor John O’Doherty said Delaney has battled a heroin problem for seven years. She is now clean and is supported by her mother.
