A young Dublin man who terrified staff and patrons at a pub with a gun because he was refused entry has been sentenced to nine years in jail with two suspended. Conor Beacom of Kilmahuddrick Lawns, Bawnogue, Clondalkin, told Gardai he just wanted to frighten the doorman when he returned to The Swallow Pub in Clondalkin in November 2007. He was armed with an unloaded sawn-off shotgun. Beacom, who was on bail for an assault at the time, pleaded guilty to both possession of a firearm and two assaults at the pub.
