Festival organiser to pay compo after punching taxi-driver in face

first_imgA festival and events organiser punched a taxi-driver in the face and then wrestled a female Garda who tried to arrest him in a row over the fare.Adam Laverty, aged, 27, appeared before Letterkenny District Court following the incident on December 20th, 2018. Laverty and a friend had hailed the taxi in Letterkenny and asked to go to Ballybofey and was told by the taxi-driver that the fare would be €30 which they paid.However, half-way to Balybofey the pair decided they wanted to go to Clady in Co Tyrone but the driver refused and said he was letting the men out.The men claimed they were being left in the middle of nowhere, hadn’t got value for their €30 and a row started.Solicitor for Laverty, of Drumboe Avenue, Stranorlar, Mr Frank Dorrian, said the men felt aggrieved and had been drinking.He also revealed how one of the men said “We could kill you here right now.”The taxi-driver then called Gardai to the scene and the matter became more enflamed.Laverty became aggressive and wrestled a female Garda against the patrol car before he had to be pepper-sprayed to be brought under control.Mr Dorrian said his client had no previous convictions and said he was a successful events organiser.Judge Paul Kelly said he took a very poor view of somebody who attacked somebody else while they were going about their duty.He ordered Laverty to pay €200 compensation to the taxi-driver and also make a further donation of €200 to the Garda Benevolent Fund.Festival organiser to pay compo after punching taxi-driver in face was last modified: July 23rd, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Adam Laffertyfestival organiserGardaipunchStranorlartaxi-driverlast_img read more

ATHLETICS – LETTERKENNY AC REMEMBERS LATE BILLY WARD

first_imgIt was a sad week for the club with the passing of Billy Ward. Billy, the former vice principal at Loreto, Letterkenny, was laid to rest at Conwal Cemetery on Friday afternoon following Funeral Mass in St Eunan’s Cathedral.Billy played major role in the club in its earlier years and was a highly respected figure within the sport of athletics all over the country. In 1977 when the club’s adults structure was being revamped, he was elected vice captain to Charlie Kelly. Two years later, the club picked up its first adult championship when winning the Donegal novice cross country championships.It was also around that time that Billy set up the Monday night indoor session for young boys and girls at the Loreto gym – a session which is still continuing at the same venue 36 years on. He was heavily involved in the senior juvenile section of the club and accompanied these athletes to national competitions. Billy was a keen long distance runner himself and completed 25 marathons during a long career.The club extends it sympathy to Billy’s wife, Mary Rose, son Liam, daughters Aoife and Caoimhe, and to his relatives and friends.Best wishes to Ruairi Finnegan who travels to Italy to compete in the 1500 metres at the European junior track and field championships this Thursday.Congratulations to Peter Gibbons who will represent Ireland for the first time at the international schools championships in Santry this weekend. There was no joy for Mark English or Darren McBrearty in the European under-23 track and field championships last week in Finland, with neither making it through to their respective finals. In the 4 x 400 relay, Mark clocked the fasted of all splits with his 46.09.
