The son of convicted drug dealer John Gilligan has been fined €1,100 for possessing cocaine at Dublin District Court.
Thirty-year-old Darren Gilligan of Weston Green in Lucan had admitted possessing the drugs for sale or supply on November 9th, 2006, at Parlickstown Walk in Mulhuddart.
He failed to show in court on his original sentencing date last week and told Gardai he'd gotten his dates mixed up.
