POACHER: ‘MAN IN A WET SUIT ASKED ME TO HOLD SALMON FOR HIM’

first_imgA MAN caught by fisheries protection officers with a salmon and a net on the River Finn insisted he hadn’t been poaching – but was just holding them for a man he never met before.Patrick ‘Paddy’ McMenamin, from Doneyloop Estate, Castlefinn, was detained on the river on June 11, 2013.An illegal gill net was found with a small salmon meshed in the net. McMenamin had previous convictions for similar offences in 1997 and 1998.He said he lives half a mile from the river and met another man who was well-equipped and was wearing a wet suit who gave him the net to hold.“I’m never near the water; it was only that night that I was down,” said Mr McMenamin.Judge Paul Kelly told him it had been “a very expensive offer of assistance” adding: “You should have told the man with the net to take his net elsewhere.”McMenamin was fined €150 for possession of the fish, €150 for the possession of the net and ordered to pay costs of €350.POACHER: ‘MAN IN A WET SUIT ASKED ME TO HOLD SALMON FOR HIM’ was last modified: February 4th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:castlefinnPaddy McMenaminpoacherriver finnlast_img read more
