An alcohol-fuelled assault in Clonakilty saw a man from Leap confessing to several charges.
32-year-old Brendan McCarthy of Tullig, Leap, County Cork, was arraigned at Cork Circuit Criminal Court.
He pleaded guilty to a charge that on March 6 2021 at Maulyregan, Reenascreena, Clonakilty, County Cork, he assaulted another man. He also admitted threatening to kill him.
McCarthy pleaded guilty to two charges of causing criminal damage to a house and a car at the same time and place and finally to trespassing.
Defence barrister Peter O’Flynn said, “This incident was alcohol-fuelled. Since the incident he has abstained from alcohol with the help of a counsellor.
“He has gathered €1,000 compensation and he intends to gather further compensation.” Judge Helen Boyle said that in all those circumstances she would adjourn sentencing until February 11.
