Man who verbally abused woman in hair salon fined

September 14, 2020

A man who entered a hair salon and abused a woman inside has been fined €250.

Mark McGettigan walked into Sally’s Hair Salon at Pearse Road in Letterkenny on September 19th, 2018.

He began to verbally and abuse Ms Mary Vanbeck who was an employee at the salon.

Mr McGettigan of Sea Breeze, Kerrykeel, was later arrested but denied making threats to Ms Vanbeck.

The court was told that there was no audio on the CCTV which had been taken from the incident.

The court was told that McGettigan had previous convictions for traffic offences and public order offences.

Solicitor Kieran Dillon told Letterkenny District Court that there was history between the two people and his client wrongly thought this was the way to address matters.

The court was told that McGettigan was a 34 year old father of two who works part-time in a restaurant.

Judge Paul Kelly said it was a mystery to him how someone could walk into a hair salon and try to address matters in public.

He said he hopes he has learned his lesson from the matter and fined McGettigan €250.
