A teenager will be assessed for community service and has been ordered to pay €1,500 in compensation, after he pleaded guilty to the burglary and criminal damage of a Bridgend restaurant earlier this year.
John Wall, 19, with an address at Templeogue, Dublin, appeared at Buncrana District Court last Thursday week in relation to the offences, which occurred at Harry’s Bar and Restaurant, Bridgend in the early hours of March 14 this year.
The court was told the Renault Scenic car in which Wall was a passenger had earlier been stolen in Pennyburn, Derry. It had also allegedly been involved in a “ram raid” in the city.
Wall, who has no previous convictions, is the second man to appear in Buncrana District Court in relation to the incident. His co-accused, Thomas McDonagh, from Derry was sentenced to six months imprisonment, with three months suspended, in May.
