A chronic alcoholic is to be sentenced for calling in multiple hoax bomb scares on his ex-girlfriend’s house.

A chronic alcoholic is to be sentenced for calling in multiple hoax bomb scares on his ex-girlfriend’s house.

Sean Fahy, aged 43, of Drumcondra Road Lower had pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to making a false report to gardaí and Dublin Fire Brigade on June 27, 2010.

Mr Fahy only began offending at the age of 38 but has racked up 64 previous convictions due to a drink problem.

While on bail since last May he has committed 15 offences including theft and criminal damage.

He also failed to show up for the finalisation of his sentence in July and was arrested shortly afterwards while drunk in the grounds of Dublin Airport.

He is to be sentenced today for making a false report to the Garda Control Centre at Harcourt Square that there was a domestic dispute happening at the house where his former girlfriend lived.

He also rang Dublin Fire Brigade to report a bomb outside the same house.

Judge Martin Nolan has indicated that with some reluctance he will give the 43-year-old a final chance to address his problems if a clear recovery plan is put before the court today.
