A father-of-four arrest- ed for shouting obscen- ities in the street had an "unhealthy attitude towards society," a court heard.

Gerard Reilly (36) was arrested when he refused to move on for gardai who investigated the disturbance.

Judge Michael Walsh fined him €200 at Dublin District Court.

Reilly, with an address at Drumfinn Road, Ballyfermot, pleaded guilty to threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour.

He also admitted failing to following garda directions.

Convictions

The court heard the incident happened at Drumfinn Park last October 30.

Reilly was acting in an aggressive and abusive manner towards "another individual", a garda sergeant said.

He was shouting obscene language and was arrested when he failed to leave the area.

The accused had previous convictions including one for a public order offence.

Reilly had had an "unhealthy attitude towards society," his solicitor told the court.

He had now started up his own painting and decorating firm.
