Longford Courthouse.

A Kenagh woman stopped by gardai on a no insurance charge, has been fined €250 by Judge Seamus Hughes.

A woman who appeared before last week’s sitting of Longford District Court charged under the Road Traffic Act was convicted and fined €250 following a hearing into the matter.

Mary Lee, 23 McHugh Park, Kenagh, Co Longford appeared before Judge Seamus Hughes charged with driving without insurance at Doonameran, Kenagh on April 8, 2018.

Ms Lee was also further charged with driving without a driving licence and non display of a tax disc on the same date.

Outlining the evidence to the court, Sergeant Paddy McGirl said that on the date in question, gardaí stopped the defendant who was driving a vehicle in the Kenagh area of Co Longford.

“Ms Lee admitted to gardaí at the time that she had no insurance,” added the Sergeant.

“She also said she had no licence and admitted to having no tax either.”

The court then heard the defendant had been issued with a fixed penalty notice in respect of matters, but to date that fine remained unpaid.

Following his deliberations on the case before him, Judge Hughes convicted the defendant and fined her accordingly.
