Five Polish football fans in airport row avoid jail sentences
Five Polish football supporters who got involved in a drink-fuelled row and shouted abuse at gardaí at Dublin Airport have been spared custodial sentences.
An altercation broke out last Thursday evening between two groups of Polish supporters when they were told they would not be allowed board flights to Edinburgh and London. They spent a night in Garda cells before being brought before Dublin District Court yesterday.
Krzysztof Janowski (27), of Kelso Place, Kirkcaldy, Scotland, Bartosz Trojaniwski (31), of Oak Tree Square, also in Kirkcaldy, Maciej Zdziarski (33), with an address in London , and Przemyslaw Zukowski (31), with an address in Poland, were all charged with public intoxication and causing a breach of the peace on February 7th.
Michal Kiecok (25), of no fixed address, was charged with a single public order offence – causing a breach of the peace.
Judge Patricia McNamara bound them to the peace for 12 months, and warned that if they returned to Ireland in that time they must be of good behaviour or else they would be brought before the court.
