Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

CHRISTO­PHER Pryke (55) from 3 Beach­side Gar­dens in Cour­town was dealt two mo­tor­ing of­fence con­vic­tions at Gorey Dis­trict Court.

The pros­e­cu­tion arose af­ter Garda Michael Burke stopped the ac­cused at Seamount on June 22.

Pryke ad­mit­ted at the scene that he had no in­sur­ance and a blood sam­ple later con­firmed that he was over the le­gal limit for al­co­hol.

Solic­i­tor Macarten O’Gorman told Judge Ger­ard Haughton his client was on so­cial wel­fare and that he had an ac­quired brain in­jury.

Fine to a to­tal of €600 were im­posed, with Pryke banned from driv­ing for two years.
