first_imgA Letterkenny man who Gardai claimed tried to punch a woman in the face at a fast-food restaurant has been ordered to keep the peace for a year.Letterkenny court.Adrian Brogan had stopped off for something to eat at the Four Lanterns restaurant in Letterkenny on December 13th last year. However, a row ensued and Brogan ended up in a scuffle with a young woman and her friend.Garda Sean Barrett told Letterkenny District Court that when he arrived at the restaurant, Brogan was about to swing and punch a woman.However, he was stopped when another Garda managed to pull his hand.Brogan, of 25 McGinley Road, Letterkenny was charged with using threatening and abusive language in a public place – a charge he denied.Garda Sean Barrett that only for another Garda managed to step in, Brogan could have caused the woman a serious injury.“If that punch had not been deflected, that woman could have received a very serious injury,” claimed Garda Barrett.Brogan was eventually pepper-sprayed and was brought to Milford Garda station.Garda Barrett said he drove the accused home the following morning and said he was very apologetic and admitted he had very little memory of what happened.However, when giving evidence Mr Brogan had a completely different story of what had happened.He said he had ben standing with his hands in his pockets when a woman, whom he did not know, got into his face and began abusing him.He said he merely pushed her away and that is when Gardai arrived and pepper-sprayed him.He said he had gone into the Four Lanterns the following day having been released by Gardai and viewed the CCTV footage with the manager on duty.He said the CCTV footage showed the woman approaching him for not reason and getting into his face.It also showed him pushing the woman away in self-defense.He added that he would never strike a woman and if he had, he would have admitted it.Garda Barrett said he went to view the CCTV footage a number of weeks later but it had been erased.Judge Paul Kelly said Mr Brogan was not charged with assault but using threatening and abusive behaviour and that Garda Barrett’s evidence was clear.“He should not have responded the way he did and that led to him being pepper-sprayed. I find the facts proved,” said Judge Kelly.He ordered Brogan to keep the peace for a period of 12 months.MAN WHO TRIED TO PUNCH WOMAN IS ORDERED TO KEEP THE PEACE was last modified: June 24th, 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:Adrian Brogandonegalletterkennylast_img read more

Maurice Bakley Tapped As FierceMarkets President

first_imgThe leadership change has been in the works since at least early November, giving both Griffey and Bakley ample time to prepare for the transition. “We are also looking at our Lifesciences group, which was our fastest growing group this year,” he says. “We’ve added in a new editor for MedicalDevices and we’re going daily with that publication, really looking to build out a new market segment for Fierce in the medical devices area. I’m seeing a lot of expansion and adjacencies that are big potentials for us moving forward. I also think because of our strength in email and digital media, we’ve got an opportunity to translate that into the real world, if you will.”Bakley says that FierceMarkets will look at new opportunities to expand face-to-face events, particularly in things like life sciences and healthcare.“It’s been a whirlwind,” says Bakley. “We’ve had to step back and ask ‘What do we need for the future?’” FierceMarkets, a division of Questex Media Group, has tapped a new president to lead the company—current COO Maurice Bakley will step into this new role beginning January 3. Current president Sean Griffey will leave the company to start a new B-To-B media company of his own, Industry Dive.“I’m really excited for FierceMarkets and Maurice, who has been a key part of the company for the last 5 plus years,” says Griffey. “FierceMarkets itself has had a great growth story and is primed to do more. It will be a great time for me and for them.”While Griffey wouldn’t disclose many details about his new company, the Web site for Industry Dive positions itself as a news dashboard for the construction, marketing, legal, K12 educational, utility and retail industries.“Industry Dive makes it easy to stay connected,” its Web site says. “News, Social, Jobs, and the Market—we provide dashboards for where and when you need it. Everyone’s got a smartphone, but not everyone uses it as a business weapon.” Additionally, FierceMarkets plans to raise the frequencies on a few publications, including FierceHealthIT and FierceHealthPayer. “In terms of Fierce, we’re coming off an awesome year here,” says Bakley. “We’ve had a new launch into a new vertical, being energy, and it has been successful and we’ve hired some great new talent.”The new president says the company hired an editor-in-chief for its healthcare group, a reflection of the need for senior leadership as the division has continued to grow. The group has also added a new vice president of audience development, Sabrina Ican, who Bakley says is an expert in leadgeneration and online marketing.last_img read more
