The member who is from the Castlebridge area can’t be named for legal reasons. It is reported that the man involved has come to the authorities’ attention on a couple of occasions this year as he parked his vehicle in an illegal manner as he attended his clubs county finals in the nearby GAA ground. The man who is pleading innocent on all charges is said to be much traumatised over the affair. A spokesperson for the Shelmalier club said that ‘while they had every sympathy’ for the ardent supporter, it was obvious to any human being that the car was parked in a reckless manner. The supporter stated that he will continue to fight the allegations and this will not deter him from supporting Shelmaliers at future games.
