Intruder on site 'to go to toilet'

AN intruder on a deserted building site has claimed he was drunk and was just looking for somewhere to "go to the toilet".

David McDonagh (31) claimed he didn't mean to cause any harm, and that he was so drunk he doesn't remember much about the incident.

Judge Patrick Brady fined McDonagh €750.

The defendant, of The Heights, Kinsealy Park, Kinsealy, admitted before Swords District Court to trespassing on a building site.

The offence occurred at Aspen Road in Kinsealy on August 31 last year, just after midnight.

The court was told the defendant has six previous convictions, all for road traffic matters.
