ELLEN Connors (44) of Vale Road in Arklow was convicted in her absence of a speeding offence at Gorey Court last Thursday.
The evidence from Garda Cathal Burke was that she hit 120 km/h at Ballylough in Ferns on October 24 last year. Solicitor David Tarrant said he had difficulty contacting Ms Connors, telling the court that correspondence sent to her had been returned, not delivered. He had a phone number, which appeared to be that of her daughter, but it was not being answered when he called. A fine of €300 was imposed on the absent offender.
