PERVERT ON THE LOOSE

Sicko who sexually assaulted a 12-year-old is on Belfast Streets.

HERE’S a warning to all kids : If you see this man aaround Custom House Square – RUN. Because he’s a dangerous paedophile who abducted and sexually assaulted a young girl by touching her genitals and kissing her but who is living just a stone through from Custom House Square.

2013-03-21 17.34.53

Sleazy Colin ‘ Beep ‘ Shaw was due to be sentenced at Belfast Crown Court last Thursday but was adjourned until Wednesday 20th March. He is facing 14 years behind bars after a jury convicted him of grooming and sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl whom he also abducted. Shaw’s address at a hostel in Victoria Street right across the road from Custom Hobefore quare where hundreds of kids and their families celebrated St Patrick’s Day concert and celebrations last week where the City Council had set up a specific kid’s carnival and play zone. Just two pavements and three lanes of traffic seperated 48-year-old Shaw’s ffront door from where the concert was being held, many of the windows at the hostel even overlook Custom House Square. Nither hostel mangement or the PSNI/RUC would comment on how the risk he and other paedophile predators pose would be managed.

ASSESS

A three line statement from the PSNI/RUC and the Public Protections Arrangement unit said that sometimes, they bbelieved ” hostel accommodation is more effective in terms of protecting the public “. ” Offenders residing in hostel accommodation are subject to a range of restrictions and may be subject to sexual offences prevention orders, curfews and electronic tagging, the statement concluded. A spokesman for the Salvation Army-run hostel would not comment when asked if there were any other paedophiles living alongside Shaw. Their statement said that as part of their work as a church and charity, ” we risk assess service users and work closely with professionals within the justice system to ensure the safety of all our service users and staff within the centre.” While the statement  said there was a system of announced and unannounced visits ” from representatives from the justice authorities “, it concluded : ” The movement of any individual outside the centre is a matter for criminal justice.” Paedo Shaw, originally from East Belfast, is on bail awaiting sentence after a jury convicted him of numerous offences including grooming a 12-year-old girl, abducting her and sexually assaulting her on dates between the 2nd and 9th September 2009.

TOUCHED

As part of those bail conditions Shaw, nicknamed ‘ Beep “, is barred from going within 20 metres of any ” child centered facility ” and he’s the subject of an afternoon curfew so that he is indoors when kids get out of school, previous  courts have heard how he breached both bail orders and hostel rules. During hist trial last November, the Belfast Crown Court jury heard how Shaw befriended the 12-year-old, giving her cigarettes, often booze and takig her to the Ozone Leisure Complex. His offending came to light on September 9, 2011, when the girl failed to come home and when she eventually did, she told them how Shaw had twice kissed her on the cheek, touched her private parts and hugged her before they parted company. When Shaw’s property was searched, cops uncovered receiceipts for a mobile phone and sim card, as well as a poem written about a girl with the same name as the 12-year-old girl. Chillingly, officers also found a map of east Belfast pinned up on the wall marking out every nursery, primary and secondary school in the densely populated area with circles. when Shaw’s sentencing hearing was adjourned last Thursday, Deputy Recorder of Belfast Judge Corinne Philpott QC revealed that a probation assessment had concluded Shaw was ‘ dangerous ‘ in that he was likely to re-offend and that he posed a significant risk of causing serious harm to any future victim. That means Shaw could face either an extended custodial sentence, or even an indefinate jail term, meaning that Shaw would not be released until it was thought he could be safely managed in the community. On Wednday 20th March Shaw faced a maximum sentence of 14 years and potentially a whole raft of court orders to dictate all aspects of his life.

UDA ‘ Forced family from home over Ireland T-Shirt !

Donal and Deirdre Hughes

A Protestant mother of three has claimed the UDA forced her family from her Coleraine home after one of her children was seen wearing an Ireland T-shirt.

The woman said her house was petrol-bombed because her 18-year-old son was spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan ‘I support Ireland’ – in support of the country’s sports teams.

Loyalistisches Wandbild in Ost-Belfast

The woman was in her home with two young daughters in their home in the loyalist Millburn area, when a device was thrown through her window, which failed to ignite.

John Dallat, MLA, said the UDA still had a grip on the area and the outlawed group “have an appalling history of abuse towards anyone who disagrees with them”.

Police hail Coatbridge St Patrick’s Day festival as a success

Luck of the Irish: St Patrick’s Day in Coatbridge

No arrests were made at the annual St Patrick’s Day celebration

 

Police in Coatbridge have described this year’s St Patrick’s Day festival as a “big success” with just two people receiving cautions throughout the day.

 

The festival, which celebrated its tenth year on Saturday, March 17, was attended by over 15,000 people. Organisers believe it to be the most well attended to date.

Despite the extra large crowd and the small police presence, there were no arrests on the day.

Two people were, however, cautioned for alcohol related incidents.

PC Davy Cumming from Coatbridge Community Policing team said he was pleased with how the day unfolded.

PC Cumming said: “We would consider the St Patrick’s Day festival to be a big success from our point of view.

“We had a very quiet day considering that there seemed to be many more people there than previous years. We only had to caution two people for drinking alcohol in a public place.

“It was a well organised event that didn’t cause our officers any problems.”

The street party marked the end of two weeks of events and festivities to celebrated the town’s Irish heritage.

Highlights of this year included a talk by former MP and author George Galloway and several concerts from local bands performing both contemporary and traditional Irish music.

A spokesman for the St Patrick’s Day organising committee said: “We thought the day was absolutely fantastic.

“Everybody who attended had a great day and the number of people in the crowd was a significant increase from previous years which we are obviously very pleased about.

“Of course, we are happy that there was no incidents and we welcome the support of our local policing teams.”

AOH Ireland – Saint Patrick’s Day Festival 2012 Dungannon

 
Time
Friday, 16 March 2012 at 00:00 – Monday, 19 March 2012 at 00:00

Location
Dungannon, Co Tyrone, Ireland

 

Created by:

For AoH Tyrone

More info
Aghaloo AOH Division 202 in liaison with the County Board of Tyrone, Ireland, would like to take this opportunity to happily invite you all to this years Irish AOH, Saint Patricks Day Parade.The parade will be held in Dungannon, Co Tyrone, Ireland. And it is the first time in over 20 years that the parade is to be in Dungannon and so it is a major coup for the town and a great opportunity for the tourism, culture and economy …of the town and its surrounding area.Dungannon has a very rich history and a deep Irish identity and it was once the principle seat of the O’Neills, the Irish Gaelic dynasty who were often thought of as the most powerful Gaelic family, and because Dungannon was the clan’s main stronghold it was by default therefore also the most important settlement in Gaelic Ireland. The O’Neills ruled Tyrone and most of Ulster for hundreds of years until their departure during the Flight of the Earls, and although little of their castle remains their presence is still deeply felt by the people and so it is with great pride that the people of Dungannon and indeed all of Tyrone feel when history confirms them to have been one of the last strongholds of the great Gaelic way of life.

So it is with great honor that we, Aghaloo AOH Division 202 have been given the job of hosting and organizing this years parade in a town that has such a great place in Irish history and so we are determined to do the best we can.

The parade itself will be at 3pm on Saturday the 17th of March 2012, and although this will be the main piece of the event, because Saint Patricks Day this year falls on a Saturday, it was felt that there was a great opportunity to have a weekend of festivities and so we will be working with others in and around Dungannon town itself to help organize other events that will take place all weekend throughout Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We hope that these events will but only help compliment the main parade and so ensure even more that a great weekend is to be had by all.

If you would like to find out more, take part in the parade or if you would like to help and get involved, then please get in contact and we will be glad to speak with you.

Lastly recognizing the great AOH tradition that there is in America, we would like to this time to offer a great hand of welcome to any AOH division or band or any individuals or groups who would like to come to Ireland for Saint Patricks Day. Because we think it would be great if you would come home to Ireland and come home to Dungannon for Saint Patricks Day 2012. We and Ireland would be glad and proud to have you, and deeply honored if you were to attend and take part in our parade.

So to all our American friends, cousins, brothers and sisters, if you would like to come back to the land of your identity, the land of your blood, the land of your ancestors birth, then rest assured that we will extend and immplement a thousands welcomes to each and everyone of you and ensure that you will experience a Saint Patrick’s Day that only Ireland could deliver.

Thank you for taking the time to read and if you have any questions, just ask. Thanks

We will follow this up with more information shortly.
