David John Paul Doherty, of Enagh Crescent, pleaded guilty to harassment between November 23 and December 14, last year.

The court heard the 31-years-old used his sister’s phone to make the calls and send messages.

During police interview he blamed another ex-partner, who also claims she was harassed by Doherty, for making the calls.

A defence solicitor said his client made the calls because he was annoyed about child contact.
