A man has appeared in court charged with making grossly offensive telephone calls to FIVE different female Gardai at a Co Donegal Garda station.

Mark Fair appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court where he pleaded guilty to all the charges against him.

The court was told that Fair made grossly offensive telephone calls to Garda Una Cunningham, Lorraine Crawford, Carol Doherty, Elaine Moyles and Grainne McLoone.

All the phonecalls were made on January 22nd and January 25th, 2015 at Buncrana Garda Station.

The exact nature and contents of the calls were not disclosed in court during Fair’s arraignment.

Fair, aged 28 of Ballinahone, Fahan, was also charged with threatening to kill or cause serious harm to Garda Elaine Moyles and her husband on January 10th, 2015.

Wearing blue jeans and a navy blue shirt, Fair did not speak during his arraignment other than to plead guilty to all charges put to him.

He further pleaded guilty to making threats to cause damage to Garda Elaine Moyle’s home.

In all Fair pleaded guilty to ten separate charges relating to the disturbing incidents.

Barrister Peter Nolan said his client wanted the matter to be dealt with as quickly as possible.

He said Fair did not want any probation or community service or any other reports.

“I have spoken to my client and he wants to deal with the matter as soon as the courts see fit.

“He also does not require any reports,” said Mr Nolan.

Prosecuting barrister Patricia McLaughlin said she accepted the guilty pleas on the condition that full facts in the cases be given when Fair is sentenced.

Judge John Aylmer remanded Fair in custody to appear before him again next Wednesday, July 25th for sentencing.
