Man sentenced to 10 months prison for escaping from custody while in Naas Hospital

Naas Hospital

Patrick Coady, with an address listed as 4 Patrician Ave, Naas, escaped from garda custody on November 3, 2019, as he was leaving the hospital. The court heard that he concealed himself in a nearby bush where he was later located.
