TV presenter Mark Cagney has been fined for speeding.

The Ireland AM host, who lives in Sutton, Dublin 13, had to come to a court which had issued a summons over an unpaid €80 fixed penalty charge, which also results two penalty points being recorded on a driver's licence.

Yesterday, he faced a summons for driving a 08-reg car in excess of a 60kph speed limit, at the N81 Tallaght Road, on October 5 last.

The case arose after he was detected on speed camera by Traffic Department Garda Gareth Vance.

The broadcaster, dressed in jeans, a blazer and a blue shirt, did not address the court and remained seated while his solicitor told Judge Michael Coghlan “my client accepts the speed”.

Dublin District Court heard that Mr Cagney had been doing 76kph at the time he was detected.

Judge Coghlan fined him €150 and ordered that it must be paid within three months or else there will be a three-day prison term in default. The case will also result in him receiving four penalty points on his driver's licence.
