Man admits making ‘rude hand gesture’ at marchers during Junior Orange Order parade

1 Mins read

A MAN has pleaded guilty to making a ‘rude hand gesture’ towards marchers with intent to provoke a breach of the peace during a Junior Orange Order parade in Portrush.

Daryl Dooey (35), of Parker Avenue in Portrush, committed the offence on June 1 this year.

At Coleraine Magistrates Court on November 25 he pleaded guilty to ‘Doing a Provocative Act’ namely that he ‘made a rude hand gesture during a band parade with intent to provoke a breach of the peace or by which a breach of the peace or public disorder was likely to be occasioned’.

He has pleaded not guilty to a second charge of being disorderly in the vicinity of Kerr Street in Portrush on the same date and a contest has been fixed for January.

The full details of the case have yet to be outlined to the court.

It is understood the charges relate to an incident following which video and pictures were posted on social media.
The images showed a man wearing sunglasses and carrying a skateboard at the side of the road as a parade passes by.

Other images show the same man in the middle of the road in front of band members and he appears to have a finger raised in the air.
