first_imgA man who beat up his girlfriend in a Co Donegal hotel after he became jealous of her chatting to other men has been jailed for a month.Letterkenny court.Gareth Doran and partner Claire Quigley had been staying at the Station House Hotel in Letterkenny last weekend. But during the course of the night Ms Quigley was chatted up by a number of men at the hotel.Doran, 34, became enraged and attacked Ms Quigley, the mother of his two children, when they got back to their hotel room.Garda Inspector David Kelly told a special sitting of Letterkenny District Court that Doran kicked and punched Ms Quigley “all over her body.”“He then threw her to the ground and kicked her,” said Inspector Kelly.Defense solicitor Patsy Gallagher said the altercation took place at 5am on the morning of May 4th and there was a lot of drink taken by both parties.He said his client admitted assaulting Ms Quigley saying he became enraged when “other parties showed a keen interest in Ms Quigley.”Judge Denis McLoughlin said he found that people showed their true colours when drink was taken and regarded the assault on Ms Quigley as on the serious end of the scale.“Your client gave this girl for want of a better word “a good beating.” I honestly believe when someone does this their true character comes out. I’m going to send this fella to prison. The victim would be shocked that someone could do this and just walk away with a fine,” he said.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client had been in custody since the assault and was planning on moving back in with his parents.He jailed Doran of 20 Loanda Crescent, Newry, Co Down for one month.MAN WHO BEAT GIRLFRIEND ON NIGHT AWAY IN DONEGAL HOTEL IS JAILED was last modified: May 7th, 2014 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:assaultdonegalGareth DoranletterkennyNewrypartnerlast_img
