Holocaust denier’s jail term suspended

The man’s sentence was for breaching section nine of the Firearms Act and section six of the Public Order Act

A judge on Monday suspended a five-month jail term for a “Holocaust denier”, describing the case as one of the most bizarre he had heard.

At Ennis Circuit Court Judge Tom O’Donnell allowed the appeal by Dermot Mulqueen (49) of Steele’s Terrace, Ennis, Co Clare, against the prison term imposed in October.

The sentence was for breaching section nine of the Firearms Act and section six of the Public Order Act. It arose from his lunchtime performance on January 23rd, 2015, when he put an axe through a TV in Ennis town centre.

Mulqueen told the court on Monday the performance art was to launch International Holocaust Hoax Day.
