A local woman who was put back for reports be carried out on her by the probation service “didn’t want to co-operate,” remarked Judge Flann Brennan.

The Judge imposed terms of nine months imprisonment on Natalie Dullaghan (37) with an address at Slieve Foy Park, Muirhevnamor and also Crescent One in respect of each of five theft offences from local stores between July last year and March last.

He said she could appeal and “see what the circuit court says.”

The Judge noted at Dundalk District Court she hadn’t kept appointments and observed “this is like throwing something back in my face.”

Defence solicitor Michelle Murphy said the case was put back for a further report, and it was somewhat disappointing. She pointed out all the goods were recovered, and handed in a letter and two other documents on behalf of the defendant.
