first_imgA boxer admitted he had no reason to punch a man who was minding his own business on Lower Main Street, Letterkenny after a booze-fuelled night out.Letterkenny Court.Stephen Doherty, 23, with an address at 50 The Garden, Ballymacool admitted to the unprovoked assault. The court heard how the injured party had enjoyed a night out at Voodoo Venue nightclub.He was outside having a conversation with friends on the steps of the Ulster Bank just a short distance from the popular club when he was viciously assaulted.The victim was talking to friends when suddenly he was punched with force on the side of his face.The victim was shaken by the incident and was confused as to why he had been assaulted and identified Mr Doherty to Gardaí as the person who carried out the assault.Solicitor for the defendant Frank Dorrian told the court that Mr Doherty does not know why he did it and had no reason for doing it.Mr Dorrian said, “Mr Doherty has absolutely no reason to explain why he did what he did, he doesn’t blame anybody else for it, but can’t understand as to why he hit the victim.“He simply has no reason to give as to why he did it, he fully accepts what he did was out of order and deeply regrets his actions but can’t explain why he carried out the assault.“He was hopelessly drunk  that evening and alcohol no doubt played a factor in this random assault.The court heard how Mr Doherty may have a job opportunity in the construction industry, and while it’s not a concrete offer, he’s hoping he can gain employment.Mr Dorrian told the court the defendant offered to pay his victim €500 in compensation as a gesture for his remorse.Judge Paul Kelly said he believed Mr Doherty was genuinely remorseful for his actions and ordered him to pay the injured party €500 in compensation.BOXER ORDERED TO PAY COMPENSATION AFTER UNPROVOKED ASSAULT OUTSIDE NIGHTCLUB was last modified: March 3rd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:assaultBOXERcourtdonegalGardailetterkennyStephen Dohertylast_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter Rocky Mountaineer is se

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterRocky Mountaineer is set to add seven newly built GoldLeaf Service rail cars on its Western Canadian rail routes for the 2019 season. The world’s largest privately owned luxury train company will add four rail cars to its fleet in April, with three additional cars coming later in the season. The bi-level rail cars feature oversized glass-dome windows and a separate dining area for guests travelling through the Canadian Rockies.To meet the growing demand from travellers worldwide, Rocky Mountaineer partnered with the Swiss rail car company Stadler to engineer and then build the new equipment at its facilities in Germany, keeping guest comfort and experience at the forefront throughout. This project marked the largest capital investment in Rocky Mountaineer’s history. The remaining three cars will join the fleet in 2020, bringing the company’s total to 26 bi-level GoldLeaf rail cars and 16 single-level SilverLeaf rail cars to mark Rocky Mountaineer’s 30th anniversary as a luxury tourist company.Photo credit: Vincent L Chan“These new GoldLeaf rail cars will allow us to welcome even more guests on board our trains and offer increased availability across our most popular dates and routes,” said Steve Sammut, President and Chief Executive Officer, Rocky Mountaineer. “We were intentional in designing these new cars to offer the same exemplary guest comfort across the entire fleet, while also making numerous engineering enhancements behind the scenes that reflect our goal of constantly enhancing both the experience and efficiency of our service.”The new GoldLeaf rail cars feature:Dimmable domed windows: The upper-level windows use a suspended particle device layer, which can be dimmed to moderate the intensity of incoming sunlight. This is similar technology to what is used in luxury yachts and business jets.Redesigned galley kitchens: The galleys feature upgraded ovens and stovetops, electrical grills, eco-friendly dishwashers, and optimal preparation spaces for meal preparation.Custom-designed seats: The heated composite-leather seats recline without impacting the guest seated behind and can spin 180 degrees to create more social seating.Enhanced ride quality: The cars feature other technical features that enhance the overall guest experience, including improved suspension design.Each GoldLeaf rail car seats 72 guests. The new cars will be added to the trains travelling on two of Rocky Mountaineer’s routes: First Passage to the West, a two-day rail journey between Vancouver and Lake Louise or Banff; and Journey through the Clouds, a two-day rail journey between Vancouver and Jasper.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
