Douglas (Dougie) Ward (36), of Loughantarve, Knockbridge, Co Louth and of Great Meadow Way, Stamullen in Meath, pleaded guilty at Balbriggan District Court to drink driving last January 2, 2012, at Drogheda Street in Balbriggan.

He also admitted driving without a licence and driving the vehicle with no NCT.

Father-of-three Ward, who pleaded guilty to the October 2010 manslaughter of Niall Dorr (18) and was sentenced in December at the Central Criminal Court to 16 years with the final three suspended, was brought to the court from Mountjoy Prison.

Judge Dermot Desmond disqualified the accused from driving for six months.
