Our thanks to Sean for this. The start of the piece:
A woman who stole almost €12,000 from the Dublin city centre pub where she worked as general manager has walked free from court with a suspended sentence.
Donna McGarry (38) pleaded guilty to two counts of theft at Four Dame Lane carried out on dates between October 4 and November 6, 2017.
At Dublin Circuit Criminal Court today, Judge Melanie Greally sentenced McGarry to two and a half years in prison, but suspended it in full.
The judge set a headline sentence of three years but gave McGarry credit for her early guilty plea, her good work history and the excellent testimonial from her current employer.
