Brotherly love! Groom and best man appear in court after row during stag party

first_imgA groom and his best man have appeared in court after a bust-up with each-other on the night of the stag party.Brothers Ruairi and Jonathon Mahon appeared before Letterkenny District Court in Co Donegal charged with public order offences. The brothers were found by Gardai outside the Station House Hotel in Letterkenny at 9.18pm on March 1st last.The pair were along with friends for Jonathan’s stag party.When Gardai arrived the pair were shouting and fighting with each other and calling each other names.Garda Sgt Jim Collins told the court “They were acting aggressively towards each other and calling each other names. F***ing wa*****r and ‘I’ll get you’.”Both men were arrested and brought to Letterkenny Garda station.The pair appeared in court today (Mon) along with their mother.Solicitor for the pair, Mr Patsy Gallagher, said the men’s mother has taken a very dim view of her sons’ behaviour.Mr Gallagher said “They have never come before the courts before and they are very embarrassed by this. They are very close brothers and have no recollection of this argument.”The court was told that Jonathan Mahon, aged 25, is a mechanical engineer and his brother Ruairi, aged 21, is finishing his degree in college.Mr Gallagher added that when both men were released from Garda custody they apologised to the hotel staff and then stayed at the hotel for the rest of the weekend.“This is a solitary lesson for both of these young men,” added Mr Gallagher.Judge Paul Kelly asked the pair is this the way that people carried on in Northern Ireland from where they had travelled for the stag party?And he further asked “Has the intended bride found out about this and what does she think of it? Is he still going to be the best man?”The men, from Manse Road, Ceaford, Co Down, replied that the bride had been made aware of the matter and that Ruairi was still going to be his brother’s best man.Judge Kelly added “Stag parties are generally very welcome in this part of the country from other countries but not if they carry on like this.“Hopefully this will be the last we will see of these gentlemen in this court.”He ordered both men to pay €100 each to the Letterkenny Youth and Community Club and he will strike out the charges.Brotherly love!
