An Attymass man was brought before the court for being drunk near a bonfire at Bunree, Ballina.
Garda Kevin Carey told Ballina District Court this week that he went to the reported bonfire on May 4 shortly after 10pm.
At the scene, Michael Culkin (24 ), Carracastle, Attymass, Ballina, was intoxicated. His speech was slurred and he was acting aggressively.
Solicitor for Culkin, Peter Flynn, said his client was very drunk on the night and went too far.
Judge Mary Devins fined Culkin €75 for being intoxicated in public.
