A Garda Inspector has said that he wouldn’t like to walk alone down the street in Bundoran at 2.30 or 3 a.m.in the morning.
Inspector Dennis Joyce was raising concern over numbers on the streets at that hour in Bundoran.
He was opposing a number of late-night extensions at Ballyshannon District Court for Paris night-club in Bundoran.
The court was told that on Friday last week Paris advertised free entry on Facebook which included a reference to NekNominations.
Inspector Joyce said less than a week earlier on January 19 local gardai had to recruit help from Donegal town to deal with the crowds in Bundoran at 2.30 a.m.
He added at one stage during the hearing that he wouldn’t like to walk the streets of Bundoran alone at 2.30 a.m. or 3 a.m.
Conor McEniff told the court that his website manager included a reference to NekNominations on the Facebook promotion for free entry almost a week afterwards. It was removed within hours and he was sorry it went up.
Judge Kilrane noted that the January 19 incident didn’t involve Paris Patrons and Mr McEniff was entitled to permit his patrons free entry, He granted Paris the eight late drinks extensions for which Mr McEniff applied.
The judge added that gardai had the problem of trying to clear up the mess left by late-night crowds and had to monitor the situation, including checking promotional advertisements.
He added that NekNominations sent out the wrong impression.
