Ennis Courthouse © The Journal Ennis Courthouse A DUBLIN MAN racially abused and punched one of Ireland’s best underage sportswomen on the chest on a bus last year, a court has heard.

The girl of colour, aged 15 at the time of the assault, represents Ireland in team and individual sports. She was returning home by bus last October from a sports event when assaulted by father-of-three, Padraig Delaney (39) of Glenhill Rd, Finglas, Dublin 11.

At Ennis District Court, Judge Carol Ann Coolican said she was disgusted by the facts around the incident on 3 October 2018.

In her victim impact statement, the secondary school student – now aged 16 – stated that Mr Delaney told her on the bus at Bunratty: “I should be shot like the rest of us making a shooting gesture with his hands. He then made a racist comment and I asked him ‘What did you say?” and he then hit me.”

After next week’s World Athletics Championships in Doha, the IAAF will announce its new revamped Diamond League for 2020 with the aim of making athletics a more attractive TV product; the end result is that four events will be cut from the schedule, and although no one yet knows which are for the chop, chief executive Jon Ridgeon delivered a warning when he suggested the field events need “bringing to life”.

How you were treated in your past can cast a shadow over your life.

The teen – who can’t be named by order of Judge Coolican – stated “after he hit me a young man saw what he had done and attacked him”.

Accompanied to court by her two parents, the Co Clare teenager said that the bus driver then called the gardaí.

In her victim impact statement, the girl said that as a result of the attack: “I have been hesitant to use public transport and this has put tremendous pressure on my parents to bring me everywhere I have to go for training matches and competitions for the multiple sports I participate in.”

Judge Coolican said: “No one should have to put up with this behaviour. He kicked out at her, made a shooting gesture with his hand and then made a racist comment before hitting her.”

The judge said that the girl and her family have had to re-adjust their lives because of the incident and not use public transport.

Mr Casey said that Mr Delaney “has lived with, socialised with and worked with people of colour and he would consider that a number would be his friends and this has caused him extra upset because he says he has no racist bone in him and he doesn’t know where this came from. The community he lives in in Dublin is a very mixed community.”

Judge Coolican ordered Mr Delaney to pay the teenager €1,000 in compensation and adjourned the matter to 22 January for a Probation Report.
