A woman who when drunk refused to give her name to a garda and then used vulgar language at the garda was before Ballina District Court this week.
On July 29 2013 at 11.40pm Karen Wilson, 16 Abbey Court, Killala Road, Ballina, was observed by a garda being in an intoxicated state on Barrett Street, Ballina.
Wilson was finding it hard to walk due to her intoxicated state and was assisted by a male in her company.
The defendant refused to give her name when asked by the garda and was abusive towards the garda.
The woman, who represented herself, said that her 19-year-old nephew helped her on the night. She said that she had broken up with her partner at the time and was drinking.
Wilson was remanded on continuing bail to October 22 for further details as to what the defendant said that night, as there was no garda in court who could assist the court with details.
