A WOMAN who runs a Donegal dating agency has been instructed to allow a District Court judge view files from male clients.

But Mary Mitchell, who runs The Happy Matchmaker agency, was not ordered to allow a dissatisfied woman client, Annemarie McBrearty, see them ... Ms Mitchell of Ballintra, Co Donegal, has been accused of failing to check out men introduced to Ms McBrearty.

Ms McBrearty is suing Ms Mitchell for €6,348.99 for negligence, breach of duty and fraudulent misrepresentation.

Ms McBrearty, of Oldtown, Letterkenny, claims that she paid €600 for 12 "introductions" in Hide allJanuary, 2009. The agency had advertised that "each prospective suitor" would be screened.

Ms McBrearty claimed in an earlier District Court hearing that it became clear after four introductions the "prospective suitors" had not been vetted or screened in any way. She claimed that as a result she was "groped, assaulted and battered without lawful excuse".

Bad, bad, bad car accident up in Inishowen

An awful car accident happened north of the county:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/northern_ireland/10594606.stm

Eight people have been killed in a car crash in County Donegal, about 15 miles from the Northern Ireland border.

The two-car collision happened on the Drumfree to Clonmany road at 2230 BST on Sunday.

Seven of the dead were travelling in a black Volkswagen Passat, the driver of which survived. The eighth person to die was the driver of the second car.

It is believed the 66-year-old man had been returning home after playing bingo in Buncrana.

The seven young men who died in the Passat were 21-year-old Mark McLaughlin, from Fahan; Paul Doherty and Ciaran Sweeney who were 19 and from Ballyliffin; Patrick McLaughlin, 21, from Burnfoot; 22-year-old Eamonn McDaid and 21-year-old Damien McLaughlin, both from Buncrana, and James McEleney, 23, from Clonmany ...

People, slow down ad take it easy. There's enough people killed on Donegal roads.

The Irish Times has more details:

Stephen Lambert of the National Roads Authority said it was the highest death toll in a road crash since records began. “I have never come across such a multiple road fatality scene and I am finding it very difficult to take in,” he said after visiting the scene.
