An 11-year-old boy has been awarded €20,000 in compensation for an injury sustained while playing football on council property.
The Circuit Court heard that Kristin McMahon sustained injuries to his leg and knee when he fell on a concrete surface while playing in a football competition hosted by Bradog Youth Services Ltd in June 2009.
He was taken to the Children’s hospital in Temple Street where scans showed that he had suffered a fracture to his tibia. He was in a plaster cast for several weeks as a result. Representing her son Carol Mooney made the compensation claim against Bradog Youth Services Ltd and Dublin City Council with the parties agreeing a negotiated settlement which Justice Matthew Deery approved.
