Man jailed for birthday robbery
a man who robbed his local off-license on his birthday has been jailed for two-and-a-half years after the manager recognised him, despite having his face covered.
Graham Bannon (26) of Walkinstown Park, Walkinstown, Dublin pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to robbery at The Trader's Office License on December 4, 2013.
He also pleaded guilty to possession of €210 worth of cocaine earlier that year. Bannon has 178 previous convictions.
