In Tullaheady, Nenagh, on Tuesday afternoon of last week a driver of a car was arrested on suspicion of being drunk. Later on that night a separate incident at the Railway Station in Nenagh led to the arrest of a male on suspicion of being intoxicated. Gardaí said he had to be forcibly removed from a bus at 11.50pm.

A public order incident at Fawnlough, Nenagh, resulted in the arrest of a male at 4.10am on Sunday last. He was found wandering in the garden of a private house. Gardaí suspect he was so drunk he didn't know where he was.
