A man tried to choke and then threatened to 'chop up' his girlfriend after she refused to eat a dinner he had cooked for her.
Stephen Coveney-Ryan pleaded guilty to a number of charges against Roisin MacNeilis including threatening to kill her, assaulting her and producing a knife when he appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court in County Donegal.
The couple had met only a few weeks earlier on St Patrick's Day, March 17th, 2021, by chance at Dublin's Bus Aras.
They struck up a conversation and kept in contact by text. However, Coveney-Ryan called Ms MacNeilis one day and said he was homeless.
She invited him to stay with her at her home in Donegal Town and they began a relationship.
However, as the weeks went on Ms MacNeilis claimed he changed and became aggressive and jealous.
