A woman who was caught handing over a loaded gun at Connolly (Train) Station last year has been released from custody on the basis of time served. Nikita Murtagh, from Mariners Port, Sheriff Street in Dublin, pleaded guilty at the Special Criminal Court to the unlawful possession of a semi-automatic pistol on 19 July. The young mother was sentenced to three years in prison, but the outstanding two years and five months were suspended due to her personal circumstances. The gun was in a shoe box with nappies and hanging on the buggy her three-year-old child was in. Gardaí and her defence team said Murtagh was used by devious people to move a loaded gun from Dublin to Belfast. https://www.rte.ie/news/courts/2018/0219/941809-nikita-murtagh-court/ Carrying a loaded gun at a busy railway station and gets a suspended sentence!
