A Cork GAA jersey was stolen from Elvery’s Sports on Oliver Plunkett Street in Cork by a 48-year-old woman who has just received a one-month suspended sentence.
Linda Hegarty of 48 Gurranabraher Avenue, Cork, pleaded guilty to carrying out the theft last year on October 7.
Shane Collins-Daly said the accused had brought €65 to court to pay the store for the stolen item.
Judge Colm Roberts said, “She is old enough, she knew what she was doing, she hoped to get away with it. She didn’t get away with it.”
As well as the suspended sentence the judge imposed put her on a probation bond for 12 months.
“If you steal again in the next year you will go to prison,” the judge warned.
