Who gives a flying fuck if he meant to kill him or not he killed the man and the fact he's only getting 3 and a half years sickens me.

Anyone who thinks it ok to just punch a stranger need's stringing up.

No doubt this was down to previous convictions but in a case where a person loses their life it should not matter.

Thats the point

If it was the result of a fight and one lad died I could have sympathy for him depending on the circumstances coz lots of us have gotten in scrapes now and again be it our own fault or not so its pointless being sanctimonious about it

This lad walked up and hit an innocent middle aged man for the laugh with his mates, the man died and the cunt should be getting hard time for it, otherwise whats to stop the next prick from doing to someone any of us might know or a care about, society has a job to do.

Read it earlier. 3.5 years is ridiculous. Almost gives one carte blanche to commit murder.

What this requires lads 'n' ladies is a compare and contrast scenario.

(A) Lets look at Paul Begley , he was involved in a very high profile case last year which resulted in him being convicted and sentenced to 6yrs in prison for defrauding the state of some e1.4million in taxes in garlic being imported as apples scam. No lets not kid ourselves here this actually was a crime and there are plenty of others involved in costing the country far more who should before a judge too. Sadly they are not but this does not excuse or lessen the severity of Mr Begley's crime. But the thing to remember here is he got 6yrs for pulling a scam on the taxman.

(B) Next we have sewer dweller by the name of Adam Keane from Ennis. He broke into the house of a deaf mother of 3 and raped her in her own bed. Now he was found guilty of the crime , convicted and sentenced to ............. (you might want to get out of punching distance to your monitor) a 3yrs suspened sentences or to put it in plainer english HE WALKED FREE FROM COURT THAT DAY!
Sure you might say maybe he was a nice fella going through a bad patch and showed remorse for his crime. Nope during the train jury home he encountered his victim where taunted her and flicked a cigarette at her. Now to be fair on appeal he received a 10yr sentence which again does not reflect the severity of the crime. But again the thing to remember here is he originally walked out of court a free man for such a heinous crime.


(C) Is this dopey thug who is the subject matter of this thread. What he did is documented in another post and for that act of pure thuggery that resulted in an innocent man's death he got 3.5 yrs



So it would appear that scamming the taxman is considered a far more serious crime in Ireland than rape, manslaughter, assault, and long list of far more henious crimes on a par with the ones I highlighted above. One can only conclude that the Irish legal system is either totally morally bankrupt, inept or completely devoid of common sense. Most likely it's probably a combination of all 3.

That pic was probably taken after hearing he was only going to get 3 and a half years.

Ya but Stacky Mick Wallace has long hair , wears groovy ear-rings and pink shirts. He's y'know a down to earth normal sort of fella . A man of the people if you will.

But fair play to him he's trying to go to jail with one foot and trying to stay out with the other. I'd say his football skills are coming in handy there.

I wonder what kind of a sentence that fucker would have gotten if the victim just happened to have been a judge.

There is no deterrent anymore, as Jerry Ryan used to say, corporal punishment was out lawed, but the problem is they forgot to replace it with something else.
So who looses....society, who gains work from it?

Dublin man avoids jail for sexual assault while victim's son was in same bed


04/07/2013 - 15:11:36


A Dublin father who sexually assaulted his neighbour while her eight-year-old son lay in the bed beside them has been given a two-year, suspended sentence.
The child woke up during the assault, recognised the man and told him to “get off my Mammy” before he leaned over and tried to push him away.
The man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the woman, had attended a street party with a number of neighbours, including the victim, earlier that day. They had known each other for a number of years and she was his daughter’s godmother.
The man later told gardaí that he had no idea how he ended up in the woman’s bed and said he thought the victim was his partner when he began touching her and pulling down her leggings and underwear.
Garda Sinead McCormack told Kerida Naidoo BL, prosecuting, that the boy woke up a few minutes into the assault to find the man in the bed touching the then 34-year-old victim.
The child recognised the man, called out his name and shouted at him to: “Get off my Mammy” before he leaned over and tried to push him off.
Gda McCormack said at this stage the man had the woman pinned to the bed having wrapped his leg around her. He whispered into her ear “ssshhh just stay still, relax, I am nearly done”.
Under his mother’s instructions, the child then ran off to get help from another neighbour. The neighbour arrived into the bedroom minutes later and the man left the house.
The 42-year-old father of four pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to sexual assault in a Dublin suburb on July 15, 2012. He was registered a sex offender after he entered his plea.
He has no previous convictions and has not come to garda attention since.
A victim impact report was prepared for the case and handed into court but not read out.
Judge Martin Nolan said the man had given “an explanation of sorts” for what he did that night but added “I don’t find it very believable, to put it bluntly”.
He said he must also take into account the way the man met the case, acknowledging that he has moved out of the area and is now living on social welfare.
Judge Nolan said the “most pertinent finding” from the Probation Service report is that the man is not at risk of re-offending and he accepted that there was “no aggravating violence” used.
He suspended the entire two-year sentence after he said that he didn’t think, considering the man’s lack of relevant convictions and genuine remorse, that the crime justified an immediate custodial sentence.
Gda McCormack agreed with Damien Colgan SC, defending, that it was clear from his client’s subsequent interview with gardaí that he had “no clear recollection” of how he ended up in the woman’s bed.
He also maintained throughout the interview that he didn’t realise it was the woman he was touching and he believed it was his partner.
Gda McCormack agreed with counsel that the man said he had taken both alcohol and cocaine that night but claimed he didn’t have a drug problem.
Mr Colgan said a probation report before the court said that his client had expressed both remorse and sorrow for what happened and is at a low risk of re-offending.
The report also concluded that the man was not a suitable candidate for a sexual offenders treatment programme and he was considered suitable for community service.
Mr Colgan said his client had mistaken the victim’s home for his own which was across the road.
