A Newbridge man who was arrested by Gardaí when spotted walking while smoking €10 worth of cannabis was ordered to pay €600 to charity today.

The  39-year-old man who is employed as an e-cigarette supplier for vending machines, had no previous convictions.

Sgt Brian Jacob outlined at Naas District Court today how on April 4, 2017, the accused was found in possession of €10 worth of cannabis. He was charged with the unlawful possession of drugs.

Sarah Connolly BL said: "He is very contrite and embarrassed."

She told Judge Desmond Zaidan how the accused came with €400 in court as a gesture of remorse.

Judge Zaidan said that €600 would be required.

He ordered that €600 would be paid to the Our Lady of Lourdes Fund which brings very sick people to Lourdes.

The accused handed over the €600 in court and a Section 1(1) of the Probation Act was imposed.
