He became abusive to gardai and was said to be highly intoxicated.He also attempted to disturb them while they were making the arrest of the young person who was related to the defendant.Judge Paul Kelly heard Callaghan has 99 previous convictions, the most recent for public order dating back to April, 2017.The defendant’s solicitor, Rory O’Brien said: “He now reaches the 100 mark today as a result of this conviction and is obviously no stranger to the court.”He continued: “This offence was not the worst type but a family member was the juvenile being arrested and my client was also in the company of other family members. They had been drinking that day and were visiting family members in Letterkenny, having come from Donegal Town.”“He accepts that he acted completely incorrectly,” added the solicitor.Mr O’Brien said his client is a single man who has recently entered into a relationship with a partner who is a “very grounding influence”.He also told the court that Callaghan has recently spent six months in Maghaberry Prison in Northern Ireland having been arrested for an offence which is currently going through the courts in that jurisdiction.Judge Kelly noted that the defendant should not have interfered with gardai and proceeded to fine him €150.Man notches up 100th conviction after row with Gardai was last modified: January 24th, 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:arrestDonegal TownGardaiMichael Callaghanlast_img read more
