Bray People - - News -

A GREY­STONES man was put off the road for drunken driv­ing af­ter ap­pear­ing be­fore Bray District Court this week.

Robert Mitchell of 188 Charles­land Court pleaded guilty to two charges drunken driv­ing at the Strand Road on Au­gust 8 and at Far­renkelly Road in Del­gany on Au­gust 29.

The De­fence So­lic­i­tor, Mr. Joseph Maguire, told the court that at the time Mitchell’s em­ployer had been ar­rested for fraud and so he had not re­ceived wages for a while so he was go­ing through a bad time.

On both cases Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan con­victed and fined Mitchell €250.

For drunken driv­ing on Au­gust 2 he dis­qual­i­fied him from driv­ing for two years and one day and for drunken driv­ing on Au­gust 29, Mitchell, was dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for four years.

Both dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tions are to com­mence on March 1.
