File photo Image: Shutterstock/sirtravelalot File photo Image: Shutterstock/sirtravelalot A 15-YEAR-OLD boy who had a loaded semi-automatic pistol under his bed after an older man asked him to keep it for a few days has been placed on a 12-month probation bond.

McNally said the teenager claimed the man said he would collect the bag the following day but when he failed to show up, the boy called around to his house with the bag in an attempt to get rid of it. McNally said the teenager initially didn’t know what was in the bag, but when the man didn’t collect it he looked into it and realised it was a gun.McNally agreed with Fiona Murphy SC, defending, that her client appeared relieved to hand the gun over to the gardaí and confirmed that he believed that the teenager had “made efforts” to get it out of his home.

The garda said the teenager would have been concerned about what would happen to him if he was suspected of speaking to gardaí.
