Shotgun pair given 10 years
TWO men who fired into a family's house have been sentenced to 10 years at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.
Jason McLoughlin, of Croftwood Park, in Ballyfermot, and Sean McDermott, of Raheen Drive, Ballyfermot, both pleaded guilty to illegal possession of a double-barrel shotgun at Davitt Road, Inchicore, on January 27, 2011.
They also pleaded guilty to criminal damage of a house at Croftworth Grove, Ballyfermot.
The court heard the two men arrived at the house on a motorbike and fired three rounds at the sitting room window, a bedroom window and the front door.
