A man who went on the run for six days after escaping custody has been sentenced to four months in prison, after Judge Marian O’Leary activated a suspended sentence from a previous offence.

Limerick man, Jason Frayne, escaped from Ennis Courthouse last week.

He had just pleaded guilty to charges after a high-speed chase that happened in April.

The 22-year-old turned up at Limerick Prison last Monday

The previous incident, which was subject to the suspended sentence, involved a fracas at the A&E in University Hospital Limerick where Frayne became agitated after waiting to be seen by a doctor for several hours.

He threw a wheelchair at a glass window during the row.

He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced for the road traffic incidents this Friday in Ennis, but is also likely to face charges in relation to the escape too.
