Public Order Charges

While public order charges attract criminal penalties at the lower end of the criminal law spectrum, they are nevertheless charges which can have serious consequences for individuals who may be left with a criminal record and visa/ travel restrictions.


If you are charged or summonsed for any of the following offences (among others) under the Criminal Justice (Public Order) Act 1994, it is important that you seek the best legal advice before you attend court:


  • Section 4 - intoxication in a public place
  • Section 6 - threatening, abusive, insulting behaviour in a public place
  • Section 8 - failure to comply with a direction of a member of An Garda Siochana


We strive to achieve the best result possible for our clients by ensuring that we are fully prepared for your defence and we rely on our over thirty years of experience in so doing.
