Com­mu­nity ser­vice for driv­ing with­out in­sur­ance

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

MO­TOR in­sur­ance of­fender Colin Mullins (19) of Cur­raduff in Kil­tealy told Judge John Chea­tle he was will­ing to carry out com­mu­nity ser­vice as he was con­victed on the dou­ble of driv­ing with­out valid cover.

So­lic­i­tor Eric Fur­long said his teenaged client now re­alises that he can­not now drive on the pub­lic road in any cir­cum­stances.

The court heard Mullins cares for his mother who sus­tained se­ri­ous in­juries in an ac­ci­dent, which con­fine her to home.

Mr Fur­long said that the ac­cused man’s sis­ter has taken over driv­ing for the house­hold.

Mullins hoped that she might also bring him to En­nis­cor­thy to carry out his com­mu­nity ser­vice.

When she is not avail­able, then he will or­der a taxi, the judge was as­sured. Stints of 120 and 80 hours of work were recorded in lieu of prison sen­tences
