A court has found supermarket chain Dunnes Stores was justified in dismissing a café restaurant manager alleged to have consumed food with a combined cost of €29 (£26) without paying for it.

In the case, Dunnes sacked Karen Walsh in July 2017 concerning four separate alleged incidents at a restaurant at a Dublin Dunnes Stores outlet.

Dunnes alleged that on May 26, 2017, Ms Walsh selected food valued at €5 and ate it without paying.
