Buckley apologises for Public Order Offence
Sinn Féin TD Pat Buckley has apologised today for his behaviour which has resulted in a public order charge against him.
Speaking today, Teachta Buckley said;
“This was a family event, a celebratory affair involving a few drinks in my own home. Unfortunately, with alcohol on board, my attitude towards the Gardaí, when they arrived at my home, was not what it should have been. I apologise profusely for any offence caused and I accept totally the punishment handed down to me in court yesterday.”
