Tipperary Man Caught Travelling In Cork Using Stolen Car.

A 27-year-old Tipperary man, named as Mr Martin Harty, who was caught travelling in a stolen car in Cork city earlier this year, has been jailed for six months.

Mr Harty, with an address at No. 59 Summerhill, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, appeared before Cork District Court, and pleaded guilty to the accused charge, which arose out of an incident where he was found to be a front seat passenger in a stolen vehicle.

The crime was first detected on January 15th 2023, when Gardaí responded to a report that a stolen Vauxhall Insignia car was being driven in the area of Barnavara Crescent, Banduff Road, Co. Cork.
The vehicle came to a halt at the rear of a house at Barnavara Crescent. Two men were then observed exiting the vehicle, before fleeing into a back garden. The front seat passenger was identified as Mr Harty who pleaded guilty to allowing himself to be carried in a stolen vehicle.

Mr Justice Olann Kelleher noted from 96 previous convictions; on this occasion it was the third time the defendant had travelled in a stolen car and that this latest offence merited a prison sentence.
