So we have the case of 2 spanners who raced a Porsche and BMW at 140 kmph on public roads on Christmas Day. The judge gives them 2 months jail each.
The 2 boyos are now appealing on the basis that the sentence is too severe. No point of law question, no doubts around guilt.
So if they lose this case, should the state really pay for appeals if the only grounds of appeal is the severity of sentence? It seems ridiculous. "The law is right, the decisions right, I just don't like the sentence".

The two men appeared before Judge Aeneas McCarthy at a special sitting of Limerick district court last week.
The court heard that motorists on the N21 had to take evasive action when the accused raced each other between Newcastle West and Rathkeale, Co Limerick shortly after 3pm on December 25.
