Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

A YOUNG woman who struck a pedes­trian with her car in En­nis­cor­thy has been handed a €400 fine by Judge Gerard Haughton at the District Court. Ciara Cooney (23) of 80 Mo­ran Park was charged with dan­ger­ous driv­ing fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent on April 5 of last year. This was later re­duced to care­less driv­ing on a plea of guilty.

So­lic­i­tor Ca­tri­ona Walsh said that there were two pedes­trian cross­ings on the day. Her client passed through the first and didn’t see a per­son walk out at the sec­ond. She said that the in­sur­ance com­pany were cov­er­ing the in­ci­dent and that Cooney has sold her car and not driven since, suf­fer­ing from anx­i­ety.

Upon hear­ing all the ev­i­dence, Judge Haughton handed Cooney a €400 fine.
