Fiona Leigh, River Road, Cartron, was summoned for the offfence on June 28th last at Shannon Eighter. Previous convictions were outlined. Defending solicitor Mr. Gerard McGovern said unfortunately, she didn't have a very good record for road traffic matters.
He told Judge Kevin Kilrane that she needed her car and had certain responsibilities she should bear in mind.
