Waterford man to be sentenced later for assault of ex-partner

A Waterford man who assaulted his ex-partner following a row over credit card bills is to be sentenced at the Central Criminal Court next week.

Patrick Whelan gained entry to his ex-partner's house using a spare key.

He then forced her against a wall, causing injuries to her back and shoulders.

The 45-year-old, of O'Connell Street, Dungarvan, was convicted by a jury last December of assault causing harm to Jennifer Kay at her home in Waterford on March 7, 2009.

Mr Justice Paul Carney remanded Whelan on bail for sentencing next week.
