Inspector Joe McKenna outlined that on July 25 2009 gardaí entered the pub on Main Street, Cong, at 1.44am through the open front door. There were 12 people in the bar and many had pint glasses in their hands.
The licensee, John Connolly, was on the premises at the time and explained that some of the patrons were waiting for taxis.
Judge Mary Devins convicted and fined Connolly €300.
