A Dublin woman has lost her legal bid for damages over injuries she claimed to have sustained as a result of being knocked over while trying to win a sex toy at an Ann Summers party in a pub.

Syvia Deehan, 46 and from Ballybrack in Dublin, was suing the company which owns the Lough Inn Public House in Loughlinstown - where the party was held in January 2011.

The High Court heard that an Ann Summers rep had thrown an item, described in court as a "ring which goes around part of the male anatomy", into the air and that Ms Deehan was knocked over.

She was said to have been shoved by another woman as people tried to grab the item, falling against a loudspeaker and injuring her ribs.

Lawyers for the pub had denied liability, claiming that Ms Deehan's injuries were sustained outside the premises.

On Tuesday, Mr Justice Max Barrett ruled against Ms Deehan.

He told the court that she was a "decent woman" and that he accepted her version of events, but found that the pub had not been negligent.
