A 51-year-old Cashel-based motorist has received a two-year driving licence disqualification and €400 fine for driving without insurance in Cahir.
Judge Brian O’Shea imposed these penalties on Raimundas Vereckas of 105 Caiseal na Rí, Cashel at Cashel District Court where the defendant pleaded guilty to driving without insurance or a driving licence at Mitchelstown Road, Cahir on November 4, 2020.
