AN ARK­LOW mo­torist who drove on the wrong side of the road and hit a wall has ap­peared at District Court. Fran­cis Mol­loy from 49 Rory O’Con­nor Place was charged with drunken driv­ing and care­less driv­ing at Castlepark on Jan­uary 18 of this year.

Sgt. Roisin Daly told the court that fol­low­ing re­ports of a car on the op­po­site side of the road which had crashed into a wall in the Castlepark area she at­tended the home of Mol­loy where she no­ticed dam­age to his ve­hi­cle.

He ad­mit­ted that he was the driver.

The court heard that the de­fen­dant was never been in trou­ble be­fore and that he had mixed al­co­hol and med­i­ca­tion that day which was the cause of his be­hav­iour.

A con­cen­tra­tion of 61mcg of al­co­hol to 100ml of breath was noted in court.

Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan is­sued fines to­talling ¤500 and a dis­qual­fi­ca­tion for two years and one day.
