Bray People - - NEWS -

A WOMAN can­celled her ex-boyfriend’s in­sur­ance shortly af­ter they parted but didn’t tell him, Wick­low District Court heard on St Valen­tine’s Day.

Ivan Clinch (33), 23 Bul­ford Cres­cent, Kil­coole, ap­peared be­fore the court to face a charge of driv­ing with­out in­sur­ance at Main Street, Kil­coole, on March 13, 2015.

So­lic­i­tor David Tar­rant said that while his client ad­mit­ted not hav­ing in­sur­ance, he had an ex­pla­na­tion.

Clinch’s ex-part­ner told the court that they broke up and she can­celled the in­sur­ance com­ing from her ac­count. ‘I was an­gry at him,’ she said. ‘He didn’t know.’

‘You can­celled his in­sur­ance and didn’t tell him?’ Judge David Kennedy asked the woman. ‘You must be very proud of your­self.’ Judge Kennedy said that he would not im­pose a dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion. He fined Clinch €250 for hav­ing no in­sur­ance and €150 for hold­ing a mo­bile phone while driv­ing.
