Dundalk man gets six month sentence for stealing donation box from church

Dundalk courthouse

A 40 year old man who stole a donation box for the Birches Alzheimer's Day Care, from St. Joseph's Redemptorist Church in Dundalk, has been sentenced to six months at the local district court.

Robert Maguire of St. Helena Park, Dundalk admitted committing the offence on New Year's Day last year.

The defence solicitor said his client had at least 100 previous convictions, and had been in custody since August.

Judge John Coughlan said he would back date the six month sentence he was imposing to then, and marked the other five offences before him taken into consideration.
