A Letterkenny man who stole a cash box containing €4,000 from a parked van has been jailed.Gavin Mitchell (40) with addresses at both Meadowbank, Letterkenny and College Park, Letterkenny, entered guilty pleas to stealing the cash and to burgling a local book store. The book shop burglary took place between October 29 and October 30 last year while the cash box theft occurred on June 12 this year at Glencar Shopping Centre.Garda English told the court that they received a report from a male who told them that he had gone into the shopping centre and left a passenger in the car.Mitchell had come over to speak to the passenger but had then left. When the passenger left the van to go into the shop too, the defendant had sneaked back and lifted the cash box.Garda English said the offence was captured on CCTV and when arrested, Mitchell had been co-operative.In relation to the burglary of Universal Books on Letterkenny’s Cathedral Lane, Mitchell had broken in and taken €1,000 and an electronic tablet.Solicitor Frank Dorrian said the burglary had taken place “out of desperation”.“He had nowhere to live at the time and was essentially living rough. The opportunity arose and he took it,” the solicitor said.The more serious charge surfaced while Mitchell was at Glencar Shopping Centre, Mr Dorian said.“He was speaking to someone in the passenger seat, they got out to go to the shop and he took the cash box,” the solicitor said.Mr Dorrian said his client was a 40-year-old man who had battled “very strong addiction issues”.“He wants to put this behind him although he knows that the outcome of today’s proceedings are to some extent inevitable,” he said.Judge Paul Kelly enquired as to whether any of the money had been recovered. He was told that it was all gone and that the defendant had no way of getting it back.For the two crimes, Gavin Mitchell, who already had 50 previous convictions, was sent to prison for five months.Man who stole €4K from parked van is jailed was last modified: July 22nd, 2017 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:courtdonegalGAVIN MITCHELLletterkenny
IT Tallaght was the venue for this game in the Colleges and Universities Football League. LYIT were coming off the back of a defeat at home to Sligo IT and were committed to coming home from Tallaght with , at least, a share of the spoils. Daire McDaid reverted to his usual midfield role flanked by Brian McVeigh of Letterkenny Rovers and Marty Doherty the Cockhill Celtic player. The role of these three defined the game both in pace and passing.Paul McVeigh and Simon McGlynn played up front, both of whom had experienced a heavy weekend with their respective teams, McVeigh representing Ulster in the interprovincial competition and Simon McGlynn making a telling contribution to the Finn Harps U19 semi-final game against UCD in Finn Park. The early running was made by the front two with Ryan Connolly and Adrian Delap providing support from the right side. McVeigh went close on several occasions and was at the receiving end of a lot of heavy tackles from Devine of Tallaght, a player now on the Shamrock Rovers books, and well acquainted with the CUFL league, this being his third season in Tallaght colours .The only goal of the game came from a LYIT attack started in midfield by Marty Doherty with Paul McVeigh pressing on goal, Ryan Connolly seized the chance to roll the ball over the line to leave the margin at 1-0,The second half commenced with two changes to the Tallaght side, Tallaght manager Pat Scully replacing both full backs a move that he hoped might calm the pace set by Connolly and McGlynn in particular.The one outstanding chance that came the way of Tallaght brought out the best in Letterkenny IT keeper Mark McElhinney who pushed the ball over the bar from close range. The result leaves the table very much on a level with match day 3 to come and another away game for LYIT in Blanchardstown. LYIT: Mark McElhinney, Caolan McDaid, Fearghal Harkin, Michael Kusigagbe, Adrian Delap, Brian McVeigh, Daire McDaid, (Captain), Marty Doherty, Ryan Connolly, Paul McVeigh, Simon MCGlynn. Subs Christopher Doherty for M. Kusigagbe, Connor Doherty, Shay Durning, Derek Ani.Manager: Shane Byrne.LYIT show promise after first win of season was last modified: October 18th, 2016 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:donegalLYITtallaght
