Kerry, or Narnia? : drink driver 4x limit, given dispensation to find wife at matchmaking in Lisdoonvarna

This is pretty odd... Star Wars, drunk driving, and a judge ordering a bachelor to go to match making :
Judge gives farmer time to find
A bachelor farmer from an isolated part of Co Kerry will not be put off the road for drink driving until December so he can get his affairs in order, a court has ruled.
In the meantime, John O’Shea (60) is to try find “a nice woman” at the Lisdoonvarna matchmaking festival to drive him around, the court heard.
. ..
He went to Waterville for cow feed and ended up talking about Kerry’s performance in beating Cork in the Munster Football Final, drinking too much and hitting a ditch while driving home.
...
“You’d never know now with Star Wars,” Judge O’Connor said... “What planet is this judge living on?” its chairwoman Donna Rice asked.
Thoughts?

Judges really need to be given some basic training on how society has evolved and is evolving.

This is a crazy story, like something out of Waterford whispers. :confused:

It's weird...and not good weird. More like this, and I vote we fence off Kerry, pay Somalia €600 to invade them...and declare them a lost cause...

John "Puke shyte talker" O Shea "gets off easy" thanks to using his Jedi mind trick on Shít Lord Judge O'Connor.

I think it's a case of "This is not the sentence I was looking for"

Who knows, if the force is with him, he might find his princess leia slumming it at lisdoonvarna and if he's prepared to out drink Jabba the hut he could drunk drive her home afterwards to cow milking bliss in the wilds of kerry :p

The judge is an idiot.

"Judge O’Connor said it was not the purpose of the State to “nail” people in terms of undoing their livelihood and he granted an adjournment of the ban until December 8th."

So the judge is saying that allowance should be made for anyone who makes a living for themselves, and that they shouldn't face a ban?

Madness.

The law is what it is. If working people decide to drink and drive that is their responsibility, and the law should be applied. If they end up losing their livelihood that's a consequence of their own actions.

Princess Leia, still laughing a week later after John "Puke Shyte talker" O shea's clumsy advance at her book signing in Lisdoon.
Clearly his Light sabre failed to impress and she was impervious to his jedi mind tricks
"This is not the lady you are looking for" she was heard to say muffling a giggle and waving her fingers. Poor John had to return home alone with his cowfeed. Later neighbours heard strange wookie like wailing noises from his shed as he fed the cows.
Don't worry John, some day your princess will "come" :p

So.....

If the bould John goes on the lash this Saturday evening, and decides to drive home, because über isn't available to him in rural Kerry....and then, because he is impaired due to the level of his intoxication, ploughs into a lovely new minivan with a family of six in it, killing them all except the two year old little girl, leaving her paralyzed....will His Honour O'Connor still maintain the adjournment for six months?

FFS! It's bloody ludicrous!

It might depend on whether or not the hay is saved.

The judicial problem seems to be pretty widespread. There is already another thread here today on a crazy California judgement.

If he'd been one of the Anglo boys he'd have got community service.

People worry that robots are going to put them out of a job.

Judges are likely to be the first to go.
