Violent criminal Leonard Dumbrell from Inchicore in Dublin, is a younger brother of killers Warren and Jeffrey
One of the notorious Dumbrell brothers has had a suspended sentence reactivated after being convicted of dangerous driving and having no insurance or licence.
Leonard Dumbrell, originally from Dublin but with an address in The Park, Clonattin Village, Gorey, Co. Wexford, appeared before Gorey District Court was charged with dangerous driving and having no insurance at Pearse Street, Gorey, on February 25, last year.
Dumbrell who has more than 140 convictions and has a reputation for violence while in prison was also charged with having no licence at Clonattin Village, Gorey, on the same date.
Sergeant Victor Isdell told the judge the defendant had a very large number of previous convictions and Judge Cheatle noted the defendant was "on his 10th no insurance charge". He also noted the defendant was deemed unsuitable for community service.
"I will activate the [existing] suspended sentence on this and I will give him a further six-month sentence and suspend that for a further 12 months," said Judge Cheatle.
The penalty was imposed on the no insurance charge with the other matters marked as 'taken into account'.
Dumbrell, from Inchicore in Dublin, is a younger brother of notorious killers Warren and Jeffrey who are serving life sentences for the murder of 33-year-old father-of-six Christopher Cawley in Dublin in front of his wife and two children in 2006.
Their other brother Leroy has also served a string of prison sentences for violent offences.
The brothers have a notorious reputation for causing trouble when serving prison sentences and have been involved in numerous incidents behind bars including attacks on prison officers and leading prison riots.
Leonard has convictions for a variety of offences including violent attack on gardaí, prison officers and members of the public, thefts and violent disorder.
He was also jailed for leading gardaí on a high-speed chase through Dublin city centre during which he nearly knocked down pedestrians.
