Driver disqualified

A WEXFORD man who unsuccessfully tried to avoid a checkpoint has been banned from driving for one year.

Tommy O'Brien, St Ita's Terrace, admitted to drunken driving at Westgate Park on April 26, 2009. Inspector Pat McDonald said O'Brien saw the checkpoint at Hill Street at 1 a.m. and avoided it by turning into Westgate Park – where the Gardaí caught up with him. A blood sample revealed a concentration of 95 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood.
