A MAN WHO said he only received his summons for illegal parking ‘a couple of days ago,’ was nonetheless given a fine of €250 at Bray District Court last week.
Judge Murrough Connellan pointed out to Patrick O’Brien, 3 Silverbridge Halting Site, that the summons had been hand-delivered in November.
‘I wasn’t at home with my wife. She just gave it to me,’ he said, before Judge Connellan pointed out that the document had been delivered to him personally. ‘Oh I don’t remember,’ said O’Brien.
‘Ah, that is a different matter then,’ said the Judge, before fining the man.
