A judge has described as "bureaucratic rubbish" a case where payment for a fine was returned to a defendant as he did not include his second name when he was paying it.
Alan Vial, from Drumando Head, Killybegs, Co Donegal, appeared before Judge Geoffrey Browne in Roscommon District Court for non-payment of a traffic fine. He was issued a penalty for crossing a continuous white line at Carrowalasson in Roscommon on July 25 last year. The judge struck out the charge.

Knock suffers blow
KNOCK Airport has been dealt a blow after Ryanair opted to cut two European routes. Chairman of Ireland West Airport Liam Scollan said the routes to Paris Beauvais and Frankfurt Hahn would not operate this year.
Uptake on the routes last year had not hit expectations. Mr Scollan said the loss was a challenge to review tourism initiatives in the west, but added that the airport's relationship with Ryanair remained strong.
Apology for licences

Technical issues led to backlogs in processing the new licences. An RSA spokeswoman said the issues had now been resolved and all efforts were being made to clear the backlog.
