A Garda sting operation in August has resulted in the prosecution of six off-licences for allegedly selling alcohol to 15-year-old boy. Both the holder of the off-license and the employees alleged to have sold the alcohol to the boy are being prosecuted.
The off-licences being prosecuted are Dunnes Stores in Westside, Apple's on New Dock Street, Londis in Mervue, Centra in Renmore, Centra on Lough Atalia Road, and Centra on Forster Street. The manager of the latter has pleaded guilty and was fined €750.
