NO CON­VIC­TION was recorded as Irina Ti­wka (41) 31 Hunter’s Green, Gorey pleaded guilty be­fore the Dis­trict Court to hav­ing €100 worth of co­caine.

The de­fen­dant met the case be­fore Judge Ger­ard Haughton with the as­sis­tance of her daugh­ter, who acted as in­ter­preter.

The drug was seized by the garda who found it in her hand­bag dur­ing a search at The Av­enue in July of last year.

The daugh­ter as­sured the court that the co­caine had not been touched.

The judge made out an or­der for de­struc­tion of the drugs.
