A judge yesterday heard that a guest broke a door window to gain access to his €30 B&B after a night drinking and dancing in Bundoran, Co Donegal. Judge Mary Devins said she believed there was “over reaction” by guest John Loughran and the B&B landlady.
She said it was not a case for a criminal prosecution and she accepted payment to the landlady of €300 for damage and recorded no conviction.
Ballyshannon District Court heard how Mr Loughran (51), of Dunamore Road, Cookstown, Co Tyrone, admitted breaking the door’s glass panel at 2.30am.
He was unaware of an arrangement to collect the house key by inserting his hand in the letterbox.
