A Moville motorist, who is not suitable for community service, has been banned from driving for four years.

Sean McCarthy, 46, Ard na Guala Duibhe, appeared at Carndonagh District Court last week for sentencing for the charges of driving without insurance, driving without an NCT, and three charges of failing to produce a licence, insurance or NCT.

McCarthy had previously appeared in court in relation to the charges.

This followed his detection at Greenbank, Quigley’s Point on October 19th, 2013.

On that occasion, the case was adjourned for probation and community services reports.

At Carndonagh District Court last week, Judge Paul Kelly said these reports confirmed McCarthy was unsuitable for community service.

Judge Kelly imposed a probation bond of 250 euro for one year, for driving without a licence.

He imposed a number of conditions on that bond.

These were: that McCarthy attend all appointments with the Probation Service and that he engage with the appropriate services, as directed by them.

He also told McCarthy to address his alcohol issues and mental health concerns.

Judge Kelly also disqualified him from driving for one year.

On the charge of no insurance, McCarthy, who has a previous conviction, was fined 250 euro.

He was also disqualified from driving for four years.

Judge Kelly took the charge of driving without an NCT into consideration.

He struck out the remaining charges.

Judge Kelly told McCarthy if he reoffended, there were “limited options” available.
