Donegal man jailed over attack on elderly woman in Dublin

A man who attacked an 86-year-old woman before putting her into a wheelie bin has been jailed for two-and-a-half years.


Alex Bailey, of Claragh, Ramelton, Co. Donegal, assaulted her on his way home from a night out in Dublin last September.


As a result of his intoxication, his barrister told the judge his client had “induced psychosis” and believed she was a “dangerous paedophile.”


Bailey brought 10-thousand euro into court today as a token of his remorse for what he did.
