Judge Seamus Hughes

Judge Seamus Hughes handed down a three year driving ban to a single mother last week

A single mother of two who last week pleaded guilty to drink driving, has been put off the road for three years.

Tina Brogan, 3 Riverdale, Ballinalee, Co Longford, was granted legal aid by Judge Seamus Hughes following an incident at New Street, Longford on August 10 last year.

The court was told the alcohol reading provided by Ms Brogan at the time of the offence would incur a three year ban.
Judge Hughes, as a result, imposed the three year disqualification and fined her €250, giving her three months to pay.
