Thirty-nine year old Eamon Lynch has previous multiple convictions for burglary, assault, forgery and drugs offences. By no means minor offences, so why is this maniac allowed to roam the streets never mind able to produce kids. He was scooped after his car struck two other parked vehicles and the owner of one of the cars recognised him. He ran away after being spotted but was later found by police walking across Craigavon Bridge. As the cops approached him he threw a set of keys into the River Foyle, Eamon was then arrested and breathalysed, the breath test showed he was over twice the legal limit.
At that time, he had been disqualified from driving until 2023.His solictor said has the biggest criminal record in British and Irish judicial history. His eight kids must be proud.
