Matthew Goldbey (27), with an address at 174 Leargán, Knocknacarra, was also banned from driving for seven years.

Garda John Kerrigan said that all of the incidents had taken place in mid to late August this year. In the early hours of August 29, Gardaí were alerted to an alarm activation at Barna Pharmacy. The front glass door and window had been smashed by a rock, which was found
