Local hairdresser was doing good deed

A local hairdresser who borrowed a friend’s car to do a good deed ended up before Ardee Court after being involved in a single vehicle collision.

Amanda Weldon of The Orchard, Hale Street admitted charges of driving without reasonable consideration and not having insurance as a result of the accident at Cappock’s Gate, Ardee on May 31 last year.

Her solicitor Catherine Taaffe told Judge Grainne O’Neill that the defendant wasn’t thinking and it was a complete oversight on her behalf that she hadn’t insurance.

Judge O’Neill fined the defendant €200 in respect of the driving offence and €300 for the insurance.

She took other counts into consideration.

She was told by Miss Taaffe that the defendant had paid €2,500 compensation to her friend.
