Son in row with father breached safety order

A MAN breached a safety order taken out by his father by putting him in fear during an argument, a court heard.

Mark Lowth (32) admitted the offence at Dublin District Court.

The case against him was adjourned for a pre-sentence probation report.

Lowth, with an address at Maple House, North Circular Road, pleaded guilty to breaching a safety order at Foster Terrace, Dublin 3, last May 15.

The court heard gardai were called to the address by the defendant's father.

He told them the accused was upstairs, and that he had a verbal argument with him earlier in the night during which Lowth had breached the order.

The accused's parents were separated and he was now living with his mother, solicitor Daniel Hanahoe said.

Lowth had made efforts to deal with an alcohol problem.
