Former politician, Ivor Callely has been given an eight-month suspended sentence after admitting he "flipped" and repeatedly ransacked a GP ' s waiting room in a "bizarre" and "sustained" Dublin District Court heard that Dr James Dolan, who had sublet his practice from Mr Callely , was left filled with dread.

Ivor Callely (born 6 May 1958) is a former Irish politician. He was a Fianna Fáil Teachta Dála ( TD ) for the Dublin North–Central constituency from 1989 to 2007 and a member of Seanad Éireann from 2007 to 2011, having been nominated by the Taoiseach.

Callely said: "I slipped. I did something I shouldn't have done. I apologise."

He told the Star: "I'm on all fours and I think a lot of people feel they can kick me.

"But I don't want to say much in relation to it at all.

"There was a mention in court, there was no context to the incident and it was mentioned in court that there was (alleged) stealing of electricity."

He was secretly filmed breaking a saddle board, pouring rubbish, scattering dirt over the floor and on reading material in the doctor’s waiting room, and smearing the wall with tea bags and dust.

The ex-Fianna Fail Minster of State was jailed for five months in 2014 over an expenses scandal.

The doctor has come out to claim the harassment started when tenant Callely got out of prison.

He told the Sunday World: "Basically, it all began when he got out of prison and claimed the electricity bill was higher than it should be.

"I told him if it turned out I owed him money, then I would be happy to pay it.

"But the hall and stairs had been on my circuit board for 30 years so we were probably even. And that's when the harassment started."

Clontarf man Callely pleaded guilty to one harassment charge and seven counts of criminal damage on seven dates in May and June last year.

Judge Staunton described his behaviour as “very bizarre” and said he had “listened to the evidence with some incredulity”.

“If it had not been captured on CCTV it would have been very difficult for the court to accept it happened,” he said.
