A 45 year-old Maynooth man has agreed to get involved in a restorative justice plan after he was prosecuted following threats over noise levels at a house next door.

This means he will take part in mediation process between himself and the noisemakers next door.

The Court heard the man, who has young children, sought to have noise reduced at a rented house next door to him and lost his temper with the tenants, threatening to do damage. However, he did not follow through on his threat.
