Derrylin man head-butted pub window three times


The defendant head-butted the window of the Crowes Nest three times with the back of his head.

A 21-year-old Derrylin man who head-butted the window of the Crowes Nest three times in moments of ‘high emotion’ has been found guilty of disorderly behaviour and fined £150.

The prosecutor at Enniskillen Magistrates Court explained that on July 27, 2013 at 1.50am police were on patrol in the High Street area of Enniskillen and were tasked to the Crowes Nest pub.


Here they observed the defendant Kevin Tummon, of Nedd Road being restrained by males.

He was acting aggressively towards a female and was shouting “f*** off” at her. When officers approached he also told them to “f*** off”.

Tummon was taken from the area, but then proceeded to head-butt the window of the Crowes Nest three times with the back of his head.

He then calmed down and was brought to his grandparent’s home.

Myles McManus, defending, said that Tummon was a single man with no previous convictions and explained this was the first time he had received a summons to court.

Mr McManus noted that at time of the incident there were ‘high emotions’ down to relationship difficulties.

The female who was the subject of Tummon’s aggression was his ex-girlfriend and the incident had been further fuelled by alcohol.


The defence added that Tummon was quick to calm down and highlighted his guilty plea at the first possible opportunity.

District judge Nigel Broderick imposed the £150 fine and bound the defendant over to keep the peace for a period of 12 months to the value of £350.
