Man convicted after telling foreigner, 'Bobby Sands did not die for the blacks'
Pensioner convicted after he failed to make donation to hospice for his offences
An elderly man in Cork was convicted and fined on Monday, after he told a non-national that “Bobby Sands did not die for the blacks.”
In December, Cork District Court Judge Leo Malone ordered Richard Hurley, 68, to make a donation to a local hospice. Hurley, who had no previous convictions, failed to make the donation.
On Monday, Judge Malone convicted Hurley, of 95 Barrack St, Cork, and imposed a €600 ($771) fine, the Irish Examiner reports.
The incident occurred on Barrack St, Cork on January 4 2012 when the victim told police he was waiting for an estate agent to show him a property at 96 Barrack St. As he was waiting Hurley came out of his home at No. 95.
Insp Bill Duane told the court the accused stuck his finger up to the man and said, “Go back to your own f....n country you f*cking black ‘n’.”
“Mr Hurley told gardaí he [the foreign national] was peeping in his doorway and said, ‘I will not have peeping Toms in my doorway.’
“He continued to shout: ‘the Irish did not fight in West Cork for the blacks. Bobby Sands did not die for the blacks’.”
At a hearing last year his attorney, Diarmuid Kelleher, said Hurley had a heart condition which heightened his lack of tolerance on the day in question.

New Yorkers eat pigeon too, but they call it "squab" and pay $84.50 for the privilege at some upscale midtown restaurants. kozmo18From Ireland to Chicago, six-year-old at center of custody battle should be returned to US
Agreed, it's not his fault that she was unable to come to ireland to see her child. She was in the wrong. I don't agree that she should get custody, sMegyn Kelly says Santa and Jesus are white, get used to it (VIDEO)
