Bray People - - News -

DRIV­ING un­der the in­flu­ence of heroin saw a man be­ing put off the road at the District Court this week.

Pa­trick Car­pen­ter of 39 Wel­lview Grove, Mul­hud­dart, Dublin 15, pleaded guilty to driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence at Dublin Road, Bray, on June 30.

The court heard Car­pen­ter has just com­pleted a three month drug ad­dic­tion course and is at­tend­ing AA.

He is aware that he doesn’t have the best track record but has turned a new leaf and will soon be­come a dad.

Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan said he could see Car­pen­ter is try­ing to turn his life around and so he or­dered him to en­ter a bond to keep the peace for one year.

He also dis­qual­i­fied him for driv­ing for four years.
