The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS -

A LIS­TOWEL man was put off the road for three years and fined €150 at Lis­towel Dis­trict Court on Thursday for the charge of drunken driv­ing.

Ai­dan Mur­phy, 2 Kil­lacrim, Lis­towel, pleaded guilty to the charge. The court heard he was stopped on Fe­bru­ary 19 of this year – at Kil­lacrim – and that he re­turned a read­ing of 44 mcg per 100ml of breath.

Solic­i­tor Pat Mann de­scribed his client as a ‘very de­cent’ man and said he had made an er­ror of judge­ment on the night. Judge O’Con­nor ac­ceded to a re­quest to post­pone the dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion pe­riod to Fe­bru­ary 18.
