Sgt Ahern said Martin then went down to reception and became very aggressive and broke some furniture worth €150. He said the gardai were called and Martin was arrested.

Clinton Martin, aged 25, with addresses at Killinarden Estate and Newhall Court, both Tallaght, pleaded guilty to damaging a carpet and with damaging two mirrors, a soap dispenser and net curtains at the Glashaus Hotel, Tallaght, on March 18, 2018.

Sgt Ahern said Martin had 10 previous convictions.

Martin’s solicitor, Jeremiah Breen, said his client wanted to apologise for his actions.

He said Martin had been in an argument before the incident.

Judge McNamara said: “He needs some anger management.”

She remanded Martin on continuing bail to a date in September for a probation report and proposals for compensation.
