Mr Donnelly stressed McCombe has completely eradicated drugs from her lifestyle as the Social Services were brought in and this had caused consternation within the family.

He explained that the fireworks were in the roofspace and had been there for sometime.

Deputy District Judge Trevor Browne made an order for the destruction of the drugs and fireworks.
