Woman pleads guilty to assaulting another woman in Ballyshannon

Guanita Brady, Bates Park, Greenisland, County Antrim pleaded guilty to assaulting Rebecca Kennedy in Ballyshannon in February 2016.

A young woman, who has pleaded guilty to assault causing harm to another young woman in Ballyshannon, had her case put back for pre sentence reports at Donegal Town Circuit.

29-year-old Guanita Brady, Bates Park, Greenisland, County Antrim pleaded guilty to assaulting Rebecca Kennedy causing her harm at Market Street, Ballyshannon On February 5 last year.

Defence Counsel Mr Toner asked for an adjournment until October.

He said the defendant had been on medication at the time of the incident and the effect of that coupled with taking alcohol would be apparent from medical reports from her GP.

The counsel said there would also be a psychological report as the defendant had certain mental health issues.

He also asked for a Probation Report on the defendant, who had no previous convictions, which would be of benefit to the court.

The counsel added that there would be compensation for the victim at the next sitting.

Judge John Aylmer adjourned the case to October for the preparation of those pre sentence reports.

The defendant was remanded on continuing bail until October.
