Fined €300 for litter offence
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.
