Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

A MAN charged with speed­ing twice at the same lo­ca­tion in the same day had his wife at­tend the district court to rep­re­sent him as he is now liv­ing and work­ing in the UK.

Michael To­hill of Old Farm­house, Ou­lart Lower, Gorey, was charged with speed­ing twice at Bal­li­na­tray Lower on Septem­ber 9 of last year.

Ms Jane To­hill ar­rived be­fore Judge Haughton and in­formed him that her hus­band lives and works in the UK. She said that she had sent a cheque to pay the fine, but didn’t have his li­cence at the time be­cause he was in the UK.

Gar­daí agreed to with­draw one of the charges and Ms To­hill said that her hus­band had given her per­mis­sion to rep­re­sent him and con­ceded that he had been trav­el­ling at 69km/h in a 50km/h zone. On this charge, Judge Haughton handed down a fine of €160.
