A trainee football coach, who was caught with a stolen monkey in a cage in the back of his car, has been ordered to carry out community service to avoid a jail term.

Paul Murtagh (aged 29) of Birchdale Park, Kinsealy, Co Dublin, and Lighthouse Apartments, East Wall, Dublin 1, pleaded guilty yesterday (MON) to possessing “one common South American Marmoset” worth €1,500.

He was caught with the animal at Ravensdale Road, East Wall, Dublin on October 1 last year, hours after it had been taken during a burglary in Co. Kildare.

 

Any excuse.
