George Cashel disciplinary action, 1829

This is document [CSORP, 1829, no.1146], formerly no.2091. See entry.
This is a disciplinary action against Sub-Constable George Cashel for being drunk - presumably on duty, though perhaps it was an offence for a policeman to ever be drunk (e.g. for security reasons).

Samuel Croker, Sub-Inspector of Waterford, writes on 2 Sept 1829 to Major William Miller, Inspector General for Munster.
Croker says that Sub-Constable "George Cashell" was recently brought before the Bench of Magistrates at Clashmore Petty Sessions, Clashmore, Co.Waterford, by Darby Mahony, Chief Constable of Clashmore.
Cashel was charged with having been drunk "on the 17th" [think "ultimo", meaning "last month", i.e. 17 Aug 1829] "to which charge [he] pleaded guilty".
The magistrates, taking into account his youth, "the very great contrition he expressed", and it being his first offence, recommended a fine of £2.
Croker here does not recommend further punishment (such as dismissal from the constabulary).
