Timothy O'Riordan (61) of Shanballyshane, Kilnamartyra was charged with drink driving arising from an incident at Sleveen East on June 23 last.

The court heard that Mr O'Riordan failed a roadside breath test and a subsequent urine test showed he was more than twice the legal limit.

Mr O'Riordan had no previous convictions, the court heard. He was fined €150 and disqualified from driving for two years.

Gardai had no objection to postponing the disqualification until October to allow Mr O'Riordan drive his tractor for the summer.
