A CASE against a Skibbereen landowner of ill-treating animals has been adjourned to Clonakilty District Court next Tuesday.

Solicitor Ray Hennessy sought a longer adjournment in the case against Kenneth Coombes of The Carrig, Lurriga, Skibbereen, but Judge James McNulty refused.

At Skibbereen District Court on Tuesday the judge pointed out that there were four sets of charges against the accused, relating to the summer of 2014 and that in July of this year the case was adjourned – at the accused’s request – on health grounds.

It is alleged that on May 29th 2014, Kenneth Coombes neglected or was reckless regarding the health or welfare of five ponies on his lands. He is also charged with an offence on June 5th 2014 of failing to take all necessary steps to safeguard the health and welfare of the ponies in that he kept them in dirty conditions without food or water.

On June 9th 2014 similar charges were brought in respect of the landowner’s alleged failure to provide food or water for 30 poultry. The fourth set of charges relate to July 1st 2014 and the accused’s alleged failure to safeguard the health or welfare of four dogs.
