MAN STOLE HEARSE BEFORE ABDUCTING DAUGHTER AND DRIVING HER TO DONEGAL

first_imgA man stole a hearse and then abducted his teenage daughter and her friend and brought them to Donegal.Jonathon Ayton took them across the border and drove around at high speeds with them in the vehicle for up to 12 hours, the High Court in the North has heard.It was also alleged he told the girls to take the Sim cards from their mobile phones during the overnight incident. A judge was told that Mr Ayton, 36, of Bonds Hill, Derry, is to be prosecuted for two counts of child abduction.He has also been charged with a “plethora” of motoring offences, including taking the hearse, dangerous driving and having no insurance.Mr Ayton was refused bail due to the risk of further offending and concerns he may not turn up for trial.The court heard the hearse was taken from outside a funeral director’s at an undisclosed location in the city in September 2010.Although no coffin was in the vehicle, Kate McKay, prosecuting, said: “It was being loaded at the time it was stolen.”She claimed the vehicle was driven erratically and then used to collect both Mr Ayton’s daughter and her friend the same night.Mr Ayton then drove them into the Republic of Ireland, with the girls believing he had either been drinking or taking drugs, according to the prosecution.Mrs McKay said the two friends asked to go home but were not returned until the following morning.“The girls were said to be extremely upset by the whole incident,” she told the court.“That part in the Republic of Ireland is under investigation by gardai.”She added that PSNI officers who were alerted to events surrounding the incident were informed Mr Ayton had gone off in “an unusual looking car”.A defence barrister argued that the accused should be released on bail due to the delays in the case.He said the decision to prosecute for child abduction was only now being disclosed.“There has been no explanation whatsoever for the delay in this,” the barrister added.Mr Justice Hart acknowledged the length of time the case has taken was unsatisfactory.But refusing the application, the judge said: “I’m entirely satisfied that if admitted to bail there is a very grave risk he would not turn up and would abscond.”MAN STOLE HEARSE BEFORE ABDUCTING DAUGHTER AND DRIVING HER TO DONEGAL was last modified: October 12th, 2011 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:donegalhearseJonathon Aytonlast_img read more

LORRAINE GALLAGHER LAUNCHES STINGING ATTACK ON EX AFTER PLANS TO HONOUR DEAD DAUGHTERS

first_imgThe mother of tragic schoolgirls Erin and Shannon Gallagher has launched a scathing attack on their father after he started a fundraising venture in their honour.Tony Traynor plans to walk across the West Highland Way in his native Scotland in honour of the tragic girls who took their own lives recently.Mr Traynor, 37, who hadn’t seen his girls since Erin was 2 and Shannon was 4, also wants to have a community centre named after them. But the girls’ mum Lorraine Gallagher told Donegal Daily she wanted nothing to do with her former partner and she knows neither would her girls.“We started a new life a long time ago and he has some cheek trying to do this now.“He wasn’t there for the girls when they needed him and now he announces that he is doing walks for them and trying to name a community centre after them.“What they needed was a responsible father when they were little girls growing up and he admits that he was never that. “He admitted that he had a drug and drink problem and that’s what made me leave him.The late Erin and Shannon Gallagher“He would be better off keeping quiet and not trying to make even more trouble and insult the memories of Erin and Shannon.“It’s a bit late for him trying to become a role model for his two little girls when they are cold in the ground,” said Lorraine.Lorraine’s world fell apart last October when Erin took her life at the family’s home in Ballybofey.The 13 year old had complained she was being bullied, both physically and on-line, just weeks before her death. Six weeks later her, her older sister Shannon, 15, also took her own life.Lorraine said she is trying her best to cope for the sake of her other son Sean James, 4.“I’m taking it one day at a time and trying to lead as normal a life as I can for Sean James.“He was everything to the girls and I am trying to be as best a mum as I can for him. “That’s what the girls would have wanted. They adored him,” she said.LORRAINE GALLAGHER LAUNCHES STINGING ATTACK ON EX AFTER PLANS TO HONOUR DEAD DAUGHTERS was last modified: February 20th, 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:Erin GallagherLorraine Galaghershannon gallagherTony Traynorlast_img read more

BlackBerry DTEK50, DTEK60 will not be sold online through OnlyMobiles

first_imgUpdate: BlackBerry India has categorically denied that it has entered into any sort of agreement with OnlyMobiles.com to sell its phones via online channel. The company has gone on record to say that OnlyMobiles is not the exclusive authorised seller for BlackBerry phones in India. We have also reached out to OnlyMobiles and will update the piece as and when we have an update on the same.   Here is what a BlackBerry spokesperson says: “We would like to update that there has been no such alliance made by BlackBerry (with OnlyMobiles) and as a result the news carries erroneous information.”Now, this is a very peculiar situation, especially for a company like BlackBerry that is not a small company and has a reputation to protect. On the basis of the statement provided by OnlyMobiles and BlackBerry it seems that one of these companies is lying. Is it BlackBerry or is it OnlyMobiles? We are not sure, although a BlackBerry representative does tell India Today Tech it doesn’t want to accuse OnlyMobiles of lying. Considering the curious case between BlackBerry and OnlyMobiles, if you are buying the a BlackBerry phone our suggestion will be to get it from a reputable and more well-known dealer, whether it is the offline purchase you are making or the online one.          —Here is what we reported earlier on the basis of an announcement made by OnlyMobiles. BlackBerry will sell the recently launched DTEK50 and DTEK60 phones in India via offline and online channels. While Optiemus Infracom Limited will be selling BlackBerry phones in India offline, online its phones will be available from OnlyMobiles.com. OnlyMobiles, which calls itself an omni-channel online platform, announced on Wednesday that it has become the authorised seller for BlackBerry phones in India.advertisementAlso Read: BlackBerry launches DTEK50, DTEK60 Android phones in India, price starts at Rs 21,990 “We are getting great response from customers and we are happy that we are able to connect with die-hard fans of BlackBerry brand.

The DTEK50 and the DTEK60 have been priced at Rs 21,990 and Rs 46,990 respectively and represent a major change in strategy for the ailing smartphone giant one where the company will focus solely on software and leave manufacturing to third-party OEMs.While the DTEK50 is being pitched as a value for money offering meant for the masses, the DTEK60 is a high-end flagship phone with top-of-the-line specs and premium pricing.While the DTEK50 has a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, the DTEK60 comes with a 5.5-inch QHD scratch and smudge resistant display.
