I like Mr Gilroy but it was inevitable the law system would catch up with him eventually.

He may plead all this freeman nonsense but in the end unless he is planning a revolution the law of the land is with the politicians, courts and enforced by the Gardai.

He wasn't arguing freeman stuff in that court.

Disgusting example of regime brutality whilst real criminals get "another chance".

Mr Gilroy was in contempt of court.
If our courts are prevented from functioning then everybody suffers.

Why shouldn't his work as a community activist be classed as 'community service' in itself?

Would you ever ask my left bollock?

Ireland's courts are a laughing stock. What with the revolving doors for the chav level of criminal, you rarely see a politician dragged up unless it's the likes of Ivor Callely - thieving rat and small-time operator. All our courts are for is to provide employment to the otherwise useless children of the connected elite with their bullshit doctorates and PHDs.

They may be courts, but they do not dispense justice.

Six years for garlic and no time at all for breaking the country's neck economically speaking?

Yeah, right.

If our courts are allowed to continue as they act presently, THEN everybody suffers.

Mousey's always with the pro-establishment arse-speak.

Anti-eviction activist Ben Gilroy jailed for three months
Judge found he failed to complete 80 hours community service after admitting criminal contempt

Anti-eviction activist Ben Gilroy has been jailed for three months over failure to comply with a High Court order to complete 80 hours community service after he admitted criminal contempt.

On Wednesday, Mr Justice Brian McGovern found there was a “deliberate and conscious” breach by Mr Gilroy of the October 2017 community service order, arising from his admission earlier that year of criminal contempt.

The contempt related to Mr Gilroy having, in a sworn statement in proceedings by Allied Irish Bank seeking to enforce a €3.2 million judgment against another man, accused the court of “criminal intimidation and threats” and compared the action of a court to that of “a thief putting a gun to his head and robbing him of his wallet”.

Mr Gilroy, Riverview, Athlumney Abbey, Navan, Co Meath, had also alleged he was “threatened by members of a semi-secretive society wearing wigs and black cloaks” who believe they are “superior to other members of society” and who “act in a clandestine fashion to hide their criminality”.

In July 2017, the judge had said Mr Gilroy had accused the judge of being “in breach of his oath of office” and of taking part in, and allowing criminal activity to take place in front of him.

A dark era for the Irish people. Gemma O'Doherty and Ben Gilroy both sent to concentration camps within one week. Coincidence? Hmmmmmm. Here's what Herman Kelly has to say on the matter.

Good call. Our courts are garbage on issues of big money and power.

Anyways.

The courts don’t make the law merely apply/ interpret it.
Indeed Irish courts contrary to your assertion have acted to curb the power of the state Crotty McKenna judgements etc even threatening to jail a sitting govt minister.

Therefore condoning contempt of court undermines the protection the rule of law affords to everybody including the weak.
