Irish buddies get drunk at Malta wedding, end up in court

The two Irish men end up in court after coming to blows

Two Irish men in Malta for a friend’s wedding ended up in court on Sunday after coming to blows last night.

The court heard how the two men got drunk and it was then that the two started fighting, leading one to suffer injuries to his face whilst the other bit his ear off.

Insisting that there were “no hard feelings between the two”, the court was told that the two had been sharing a hotel room.

The court warned that their suspended sentence was still effective, even if they were due to leave the island given that sentences handed down in a EU member state are applicable across the union.
