Man accused of entering home with baseball bat


A MAN has been charged with going to a home in Coleraine’s Ballysally estate, with other people, armed with baseball bats to attempt to intimidate a man they believed was assisting in the investigation of an offence.

Ryan Mark Gerald Golligher (24), of no fixed abode, appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court on May 23 in connection with the offence which is alleged to have happened on November 23 last year.

The accused said he had no objection to the holding of a Preliminary Enquiry and a prosecutor said she believed there was a case to answer.

Defence solicitor John Murphy said he had no contrary submissions and Golligher said he did not wish to say anything at this stage.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Antrim Crown Court in June.

At the same court:

A MAN and woman from Macosquin have pleaded guilty to being disorderly in the Ballysally area of Coleraine.

Alan McNaugher (27) and Nicole Kathleen Deborah Christie (24), both of the same address at Ramsey Park, appeared side by side in the dock at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday May 23.

They both pleaded guilty to being disorderly at Elms Park on May 6 this year and to resisting a police constable in the execution of her duty on the same date.

They were each released on their own bail of £200 and pre-sentence reports will be prepared before they return to the court in June.
