Wexford People - - NEWS -

LEAV­ING lit­ter on The Bur­row in Ross­lare cost Roisin Sarah Mur­phy of 44 Cois na Mara, Rose­town, Ross­lare a fine of €300 when her case was dealt with at Wex­ford Dis­trict Court.

Her mess was spot­ted and pho­tographed by a man who passed the ev­i­dence to Wex­ford County Coun­cil, al­low­ing them to trace the cul­prit.

Lo­cal author­ity of­fi­cial Anita Ryan told the court that an email was re­ceived from Ms Mur­phy in­di­cat­ing that she did not have money to pay the fixed penalty fine is­sued to her in the post.

The de­fen­dant did not at­tend the court sit­ting at Ard­ca­van where Judge Ger­ard Haughton upped the penalty to €300 and then added an order to pay €200 costs within five months.
