A DONEGAL woman who was found guilty of altering price tags in a Letterkenny shop has been fined in court.

Gloria McCafferty (40) of Driminin, Barnesmore, was before Letterkenny District Court, where she pleaded guilty to the incident at TK Maxx, Letterkenny.

McCafferty was found to have changed price tags on a handbag and a pair of tracksuit bottoms. The handbag had been €139.99 and a price tag of €38 was put on while the tracksuit bottoms were changed to €5.

McCafferty admitted to the offences and Gardaí say she was ‘extremely co-operatve and apologetic’. The items were returned as re-sellable.

Solicitor for McCafferty, Mr Patsy Gallagher, said his client, a full-time mother, made ‘full and frank admissions’ and had ‘no need to do it’.

Judge Paul Kelly said that he would deal with the case by way of a €250 donation and would strike the matter out.
