Car owner on honeymoon

A Moville man has told a court he was on honeymoon when his car was detected speeding,

The car belonging to Thomas Ryan Doherty, 118 St. Finian’s park, was detected speeding at Ballyargus, Redcastle on July 26, 2014. Doherty told the court he was in Majorca on honeymoon on that date and his brother-in-law had come home from Australia for the wedding. He wasn’t insured to drive. Doherty said he did not nominate him as the driver as he had returned to Australia. Judge Paul Kelly said this was a separate offence but dismissed the speeding charge.
