The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

A driver who was five times over the drink driv­ing limit was a binge drinker, Sligo Dis­trict Court was told. “He’s a binge drinker and un­for­tu­nately this was one of those oc­ca­sions,” said Mr Ger­ard McGovern, so­lic­i­tor who was ap­pear­ing on be­half of Char­lie Dolan (53) of 56 Gar­avogue Vil­las who was ar­rested at Cran­more Road on April 20 th last. The read­ing was 123 mgs of al­co­hol per 100mls of breath. He had a pre­vi­ous drink driv­ing con­vic­tion in 2003. “It’s a shock­ing read­ing, the limit is 22mgs,” said Judge Kevin Kil­rane who fined Dolan €100 and banned him for four years.
