A GRANDMOTHER who was before Bandon District Court charged with not wearing a mask in a shop has been given a suspended sentence.

Margaret Buttimer, (66) of The Cottage, St Fintan's Road, Bandon, charged with not wearing a mask in a shop, was remanded in custody last week, having turned up for her court case without a mask.

This morning she was given a three-week jail sentence, but suspended for two years.

A group of anti-mask supporters gathered outside the courthouse during the case.
