Responding to Irish Water’s announcement that it would proceed with an application to An Bord Pleanála, Deputy Nolan stated that “the submission is premature as there are too many gaps in the research and the issue of existing water leaks has not been adequately addressed”. The €1.3 billion scheme proposes to take water from the Parteen basin and use a 170km pipeline to pump it to Dublin and major Midland towns.

Mother arrested for allegedly using stun gun to wake son for Easter church service

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(PHEONIX) — A mother in Arizona is in trouble after allegedly getting too overzealous in waking her son for Easter church service.According to Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV, the mother was arrested after she used a stun gun to wake her son for Sunday service.Phoenix police say 40-year-old Sharron Dobbins “contact tazed her teenage son on the leg” in order to wake him.“I said, ‘Get up! It’s Jesus’ Day!’” Dobbins told KNXV.Dobbins admits she was holding a Taser, but says she only flashed its lights and made it spark in order to warn her 16-year-old son.“I made the noise with the Taser, but I did not tase my son.”Phoenix police say they found two marks on the teen’s leg and took Dobbins into custody. Dobbins spent 12 hours in jail on Easter, KNXV reported.“He was like, ‘Mom, I’m calling the police.’ I said, ‘You can call the police, UPS, DPS, whoever you want to call,’” Dobbins told KNXV. “Police were on the phone and I told the dispatcher, I told her, ‘You need to be with Jesus right now.’”Police records show Dobbins was charged with one count of child abuse with intent to cause harm.“I don’t think I did anything wrong because you’re supposed to put God first and that’s all I was trying to do is tell my kids to put God first,” said Dobbins.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
