Buncrana District Court heard that Ms. McDonagh repaid the compensation to the Inishowen Co-Op. She pleaded guilty to the offence last Thursday.The court heard that charges against two juveniles, who were charged alongside Ms. McDonagh, were withdrawn by the Gardai on the basis of Ms. McDonagh’s guilty plea.Garda Inspector David Murphy told the court that Garda McHugh was called to Inishowen Co-Op on November 28, 2015, after it was alleged that items were stolen from their premises at the Cockhill Road.He said while there he met with the store manager, Sam Ramsey, who had viewed CCTV of an older female, who was accompanied by two younger females, removing a Triton power shower from the store.Insp. Murphy said the CCTV showed Ms. McDonagh pointing towards the shower and holding open the door, while the two younger ladies removed it from the store.He said it was clear that it was a ‘joint enterprise’ between Ms. McDonagh and the two juveniles.Insp. Murphy said Gda. McHugh recognised Ms. McDonagh from the CCTV footage and he searched her home at the Big Isle in Manorcunningham after receiving a search warrant. However, he did not locate the shower at the Big Isle.Kathleen McDonagh was arrested. However Insp. Murphy said she was not co-operative during interview and answered ‘no comment’ when questions were put to her by Gda. McHugh.Insp. Murphy said the power shower was never recovered, however McDonagh repaid the compensation to the Inishowen Co-Op.He said McDonagh had five previous convictions for theft, damaging property and had been given the probation act for cruelty to animals.Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian said Ms. McDonagh and her family were familiar to the court. He said Ms. McDonagh, a mother of 11 children, had seen hardship in her life, adding that her domestic situation was ‘chaotic’.“Her family has lived in the compound in the Big Isle for twenty years, her domestic situation is chaotic but she is the voice of reason among these people most of the time,” Mr. Dorrian said.“She has great remorse and regret for what happened.”Judge Paul Kelly said McDonagh had five previous convictions for theft dating back to the late 1990s.“She is well aware of the impact these convictions would have on her,” Judge Kelly added, before sentencing her to two months jail, suspended for 12 months, on the basis that she is not convicted on any other offences under the theft and fraud offences act.”Mum of 11 gets suspended jail sentence for sixth theft conviction was last modified: January 16th, 2018 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:courtdonegalKathleen McDonaghlast_img read more


DANIEL SAYS ‘DIA DUIT’ TO HIS SPANISH LESSONS!


first_imgSinger Daniel O’Donnell’s attempts to learn to speak Spanish are floundering – because he keeps mixing it up with Irish!Daniel says Hola!The Kincasslagh chart-topper decided to go back to school to learn the native language as he is spending more time in his villa in Tenerife.It follows a spell spent by the star in Irish college in Co Donegal last summer to brush up on his “coupla focail.” But now the 51 year old has found he is mixing up both languages.He revealed that he breaks out into his native tongue during Spanish class.Daniel explained “Having an extended time off I decided that I would try to learn some Spanish this year.“I can speak and understand a little but as we spend so much time here, I would like to be able to converse with the local people in their own language. “So here I am at 51. I go off every morning with my school bag and spend a part of my evening doing homework. Last year I went to the Irish college to learn Irish and next year I have decided that I want to go back to learn some more.“But sometimes in the Spanish class when I think I’m in full flow, an Irish word pops into the sentence.”Meanwhile Daniel has recorded a new show for TG4 in Irish which will be broadcast in September.“It was a great challenge for me especially after going to Irish college last year. I was delighted that the producers asked me to present the show for them in our native language.”  DANIEL SAYS ‘DIA DUIT’ TO HIS SPANISH LESSONS! was last modified: July 3rd, 2013 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:daniel o’donnellirishlessonsSpanishTenerifelast_img read more
