The 16 year old, who cannot be named, appeared before the court on a public order charge.

Gardai asked the court to order the man to observe a curfew between the hours of 8am and 8pm each day and to sign on at Letterkenny Garda Station twice a week.

However Judge Paul Kelly agreed to give the youth an extra hour until 9pm each evening.

The youth then asked if he could be allowed to extend the curfew until 10pm but this was refused.

Through his solicitor, Mr Patsy Gallagher, the teen then asked of he would be allowed to go to a Halloween Ball this Friday night at the Golden Grill Nightclub in Letterkenny.

Judge Kelly considered the request and was told the event finished at midnight.

He agreed to allow the teenager to go to the party but told him the curfew was only extended until 12.30am for the night.

Judge Kelly said he was sure there would be Gardai in the area that night keeping an eye on proceedings.

Garda Inspector David Kelly said they were aware of the defendant’s address and could always send a car around to his house at 12.30am to ensure he was home.
