Wexford People - - NEWS -

IRENE Goff from 4 Red­wood Park, Mur­rin­town was banned from driv­ing for two years af­ter Judge Ger­ard Haughton im­posed a mo­tor in­sur­ance con­vic­tion.

Fines adding up to a to­tal of €3,100 were also handed down in the ab­sence of the of­fend­ing mo­torist at Wex­ford District Court.

The case went ahead af­ter solic­i­tor Ed King con­firmed that he was not rep­re­sent­ing the ac­cused driver.

First into the wit­ness box was Garda Richie Mur­ray who told the court how he found Ms Goff’s Ford Fo­cus parked with­out the nec­es­sary per­mit in a bay re­served for the use of dis­abled peo­ple.

Then Garda Ed­ward Widger gave his ev­i­dence of stop­ping the same red-coloured Fo­cus at a check­point in Pierces­town.

The ve­hi­cle had no valid tax disc ex­hib­ited and no ev­i­dence of in­sur­ance cover be­ing in place was ever pro­duced by the de­fen­dant.

She was fined €2,000 for the in­sur­ance of­fence and put off the road for two years, with €1,100 in fines marked on the var­i­ous other sum­monses.
