A man who threw a brick at his ex-partner's door and threatened her “in a spasm of jealousy” has been warned not to harass or unnecessarily contact her again or he will go to prison
Kyle Walsh (30) of Killinarden Heights, Tallaght, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to burglary and making a threat at his former partner’s home, on December 30, 2019.
The court heard that in “a spasm of jealousy,” Walsh had thrown a brick and entered through the front door of his formers partner’s home. He made threats to kill her before leaving the house.
Judge Martin Nolan said it had been a frightening and serious offence.
The judge said looking through the probation report it seems the defendant had an attitudinal problem which he has to deal with. He noted that the events took place three years ago and had not occurred again. Walsh has no relevant previous convictions.
