Judge refuses Garda objections and grants Donegal nightclub a Christmas night license

first_imgA Judge has saved Christmas for hundreds of revelers after he granted a premises the only drinks license for Donegal for Christmas night.The Limelight Nightclub in Glenties had been refused the license to open at a minute past midnight in the early hours of December 26th. It followed objections by Gardai who claimed the venue would become a magnet for hundreds of drunken festive party-goers from counties Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo.Garda Superintendent Colin Nevin said if the license was granted, his officers would come under severe pressure with the arrival of ‘boy racers’ into the town as well as people urinating on the streets.He said if there were arrests, other officers would have to be called in from other areas.However, a Judge has dramatically granted the exemption for the license which will allow up to 1,600 seasonal socialisers to party from 12.01am until 2.30am on December 26th.Judge John Aylmer heard at Letterkenny Circuit Court how the Limelight could cater for up to 1,600 people on Christmas night.Owner and well-known rally driver Declan Boyle said Christmas night was always a traditional night for socialising in the town and that pubs and clubs had suffered badly during the recession.He said there was a tradition in the area of people meeting up on Christmas night.“That is the tradition. The Limelight in Glenties always got the crowd. We need to try and get it back,” he said.Judge Aylmer was told that Christmas night exemptions had not been granted anywhere in Donegal since 2012 after Garda Superintendents in the four local districts said there was too much anti-social behaviour on the night.Local resident Donal McLoone, who lives directly across from the nightclub, said he simply could not sleep on Christmas night and either could other neighbours if a license was granted.He told how his father, who lived nearby, was in his 80s and did not enjoy good health and that the noise in the street from revelers would last until 5am.As well as people urinating in the street, he claimed they will be blowing horns on their cars, banging doors and sitting on window ledges outside their homes.He pointed to the fact that the Limelight had been granted nine other exemptions over the festive season.“I feel we’re entitled to a bit of fair play rather than being prisoners on Christmas night from 10pm until 5am,” he said.After reviewing the case, Judge Aylmer said he had every sympathy for residents and for the Gardai.However, he said that as a matter of law it would be wrong, given the law provides an entitlement that the premises can apply for this type of order for the early hours of December 26th.He said the Limelight had a very good record and was well-managed and he granted the exemption with a number of strict conditions.These included that the event was not to be advertised other than word of mouth, that a total of 16 security staff be employed and that three of these be dedicated to guard the three houses beside the nightclub on the evening.Judge refuses Garda objections and grants Donegal nightclub a Christmas night license was last modified: December 18th, 2017 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:CHristmascourtdonegalexemptionlicenselimelightnightclublast_img read more

Suit filed in baseball bat death

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake The younger boy struck Jeremy in the knee, then seconds later hit him in the head with an aluminum bat on April 12 near the Palmdale PONY League baseball field. Jeremy had teased the boy about losing a game and pushed him, witnesses said. Jeremy died about two hours later at a hospital. Attorneys for Harris have appealed his conviction. Brian Rourke has formed a foundation aimed at preventing violence in youth sports. The lawsuit names as defendants Harris, Harris’ parents, the city of Palmdale, Palmdale PONY Youth Baseball, Palmdale PONY League and the Antelope Valley Union High School District. Harris’ parents and league representatives could not be reached for comment. The city and high school district denied claims filed against them by the Rourkes in October, the lawsuit said. LANCASTER – The parents of Jeremy Rourke, the 15-year-old killed when another boy hit him in the head with a baseball bat after a youth baseball game, filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the boy, his parents, the city and the baseball league. Brian and Angela Rourke say in the lawsuit that there had been incidents of violence in the past at the Palmdale PONY League field and that steps should have been taken to prevent the fatal attack. “The criminal case only evaluated the conduct of the boy who swung the bat,” said Andrew Bryman, attorney for the Rourkes. “Our case is alleging that there has been inappropriate and improper supervision, and the incident was avoidable and preventable by a number of people who should have done something.” Greg Harris Jr., 13, was sentenced in July to confinement in the California Youth Authority until he is 25 after being convicted of second-degree murder in Juvenile Court. Bryman, the Rourke’s attorney, said he believes that the city owns the PONY League playing field near 20th Street East and Palmdale Boulevard, and the high school district has jurisdiction over it. Bryman said Harris took the bat out of a bag and swung two times. “Why were there no adults who could have intervened?” Bryman said. The lawsuit alleges that “there has been a history of violence at this playing field so that all defendants either knew or in the exercise of reasonable diligence should have known that there was a propensity for violence and should have taken appropriate safety precautions to prevent said incident.” In alleging negligence against the Palmdale PONY League, the lawsuit said the defendants should have known that a failure to provide additional security, a law enforcement presence or parental or league supervision during games “created a danger to students, players and others … and resulted in decedent Jeremy Rourke being assaulted and killed.” In the claim against the city and the high school district, the lawsuit said they knew or should have foreseen that the playing field, in the absence of adequate security, constituted an unreasonable risk of harm. When both sets of parents appeared on a November episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Harris’ mother, Gigi Harris, said it was an accident and that her son did not intentionally harm Jeremy, but was frightened of the older boy. Jeremy’s parents said their son did not bully or provoke the younger boy. — Karen Maeshiro, (661) 267-5744 karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Why I Need Aereo TV — And You Do, Too [Review]

first_imgThe first time you launch Aereo, you start to see why TV network executives are losing their minds. It’s not because the service feels like it’s doing anything wrong. Quite the opposite. For the consumer, it’s doing almost everything right.When you log in, you’re shown a TV Guide-style listing of shows that are currently airing. It’s not just the four or five obvious options, either. In the New York market, there are 30 broadcast channels that Aereo grabs and rebroadcasts to your account via the tiny antenna you’re effectively renting from the company when you sign up.See Also: To Truly Stop Aereo, Broadcasters Need To Innovate Like HellIt’s mostly typical broadcast fare: local news, daytime soap operas, people having meltdowns on Maury, prime time sitcoms, PBS and so forth. All the standard broadcast networks are augmented with local channels, foreign language networks and an inordinate amount of religious programming. The selection may not be as robust as that of cable, but some of the most popular shows on TV are waiting there, ready to be watched or DVR’ed to the cloud for later.TV On Any Device, Second Screen And AllAereo doesn’t have native mobile apps yet, but it makes up for that with a very capable, cross-platform Web app. It works in the browser on my iPad and iPhone, from which it can be AirPlayed directly to my television via Apple TV. I didn’t get the chance to test it, but I’m presuming Aereo works on most other modern browsers and platforms.Thanks to iOS multitasking, I can close the browser and do other things like check email, browse the Web and tweet. You know, the second screen stuff we all do anyway. It all still works, even if we use our second screens to feed content to the first screen. The only drawback is that the transition from video to video is not entirely smooth with AirPlay. That experience should get better once Aereo develops native mobile apps and, eventually, lands on smart TV platforms. I am admittedly not a huge TV person. Still, as I use Aereo’s Web app from device to device, its value starts to feel more and more obvious. I can watch my favorite PBS shows, tune into the local news (for whatever reason) and watch popular prime time shows like 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, all using the Internet, which is what I use for just about all other media consumption. Indeed, after a few days of testing Aereo, I’m left with the distinct impression that this is not only a useful service, but something that needs to exist. I understand why it frightens the TV execs, but I wholeheartedly disagree with them. This is a hugely innovative service that hands control back to the TV-viewing consumer in a way that wasn’t possible before. I’m not a legal scholar, but the copyright infringement claims made by the big media conglomerates against Aereo seem like a stretch. So far, the courts have agreed. The TV Antenna Of The FutureSince Aereo launched, the television industry has been hoping to sue it out of existence. Early attempts to have the service shut down have been unsuccessful, thanks to legal logic that may well wind up saving Aereo in the end. Meanwhile, the networks are clamoring for a plan B, which, if you believe the claims of network execs, includes threats to pull out of broadcast TV all together. (Said threats are, of course, unbelievably stupid.)Aereo does not disrupt the core broadcast business model. When I’m watching TV shows on my iPad using Aereo, I’m still seeing all the commercials, just like I would if I tuned in via an antenna on my television set. The problem is, my antenna sucks. On a good day, I can get four or five channels to display clearly on my TV, and even that involves some finagling. It feels decidedly old-fashioned to be tinkering with an antenna just to watch NBC. By contrast, Aereo feels right at home in the 21st century. When you watch it, it doesn’t feel like you’re stealing anything. Instead, it feels like the service has restored your ability to conveniently tune into broadcast TV — an ability that’s atrophied for years thanks to changing viewer habits and, consequently, expectations for picture and sound quality.Broadcasters and TV service providers didn’t come up with a good solution, so Aereo rose to the challenge. Aereo isn’t stealing anything. It just wants to sell you the TV antenna of the future.Why Broadcasters Hate AereoThis infuriates broadcasters because it could eventually threaten the lucrative fees they get from cable providers, whose all-or-nothing, bloated content bundles suddenly look a little less attractive once a service like Aereo is available for $13 per month. Combined with Netflix and Hulu, Aereo makes cable look less necessary than ever and all three combined are still cheaper than most cable bills. I have no interest in subscribing to cable. It’s expensive and the vast majority of what I’d be paying for is, so far as I can tell, complete garbage. Instead, I catch up with favorite shows via the Internet, where I can also find a growing selection of perfectly worthwhile non-TV video. Aereo is perfect for people like me.More importantly, it could be an easy sell to many in the upcoming generation of “cord never getters” who are now totally accustomed to getting their TV online. We like to think about what the future of TV might look like. If it survives, Aereo seems very well positioned to be a part of that picture. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Related Posts center_img 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Tags:#Aereo#Internet TV#television john paul titlowlast_img read more

Andy Murray to make career decision ‘in next week’ after Australian Open exit
