It comes after a difficult few years for Rachel and her family as she stood by her eldest son following his appearances in court on drug charges.

Joshua - who is a great-grandson of Ballymaloe founder, the late Myrtle Allen – was found to have been in possession of €280 worth of cocaine by Judge Alec Gabbett after a lengthy hearing at Midleton District Court on May 20th.

Earlier this month, Judge Gabbett jailed Mr Allen for two months having convicted him of the offence. Mr Allen had entered a not guilty plea in relation to this offence. Defence solicitor Don Ryan lodged an immediate appeal and bail was granted in the case.

An appeal against his conviction will be heard in December.

Mr Allen had been released from prison just over a month before the offence took place on July 10th 2020. The conviction was a triggering offence in respect of an outstanding suspended sentence over a previous drugs matter.

He has six previous convictions for drugs related offences all arising from a single incident two years ago, receiving a 15-month custodial sentence with 15 months suspended at Circuit Court level in 2020 after pleading guilty to possession of over €22,000 worth of cannabis for sale and supply.
