    53 previous convictions, including drunk driving and burglary and had been on bail at the time of the incident.

      David Drumm, €2700000000 fraud and he does less than 3 years in jail.

      No mention of his release on state media, aka rte.

        I was almost selected for jury service at his trial. The judge let me out of it for personal reasons, but the guy after me got picked for it as the last juror.

        Long story, but the reasons the judge gave to allow people out of being on his jury were hilarious.

        Basically, no one could be impartial against this guy, plus the judge was saying that the trial would last month and months.

        I think the whole jury was let go after a few weeks anyway.

    I’m sure all the people who have had loved ones killed in drunk driving incidents will find that video, rather than same one publicly shared by the Gardai, hilarious.

    Once he stopped the car filming blocked him in until gardai arrived. Yer man went above and beyond fair play.

  4. Brother Barnabas

    a friends 12 year old daughter was knocked off her bicycle in really similar circumstances – 2 guys loaded with booze and coke, string of convictions, banned from driving etc. 4 years on, she’s still dealing with the consequences, while the driver served 10 weeks prison

    Cork Circuit Court Judge Seán Ó Donnabháin said that if he could have he would have disqualified Daniel Culhane for life.

    Yet the judge could have imposed rhe maximum 10 years for the death threat plus 6 months for dangerous driving plus additional for drink driving, theft, criminal damage, no driving licence and no insurance, all to run consecutively.

    Instead, a patethic overly lenient sentence and a lame excuse, take a bow Judge Seán Ó Donnabháin
