Tipperary’s all-time leading goalscorer; GPA All Stars “Hurler Of The Year”; and current licensee of Coppinger’s bar, Mr Lar Corbett has been fined €250, having pleaded guilty to allowing persons to remain on his pub premises, for almost one full hour after the official closing time of 12.30 a.m.

The winner of two All-Ireland senior hurling titles with Tipperary in 2001 and 2010; Mr Corbett pleaded guilty to one count of a breach of the licensing laws, when he appeared before Judge Elizabeth MacGrath at Nenagh District Courthouse.

Sergeant Michael Keating informed Nenagh Court, that at 1.25 a.m. on July 17th 2016, Gardaí inspected ‘Coppinger’s Bar’, latter situated on Parnell Street, Thurles, Co. Tipperary, and found some 20 persons still seated drinking on the premises.  A previous conviction for a similar offence was found, dating back to 2015, for which Mr Corbett then received a fine of €200.

In this case Judge Elizabeth MacGrath fined Mr Corbett €250, allowing him six months in which to make the emolument.
