Woman's six dangerous driving convictions

Six dangerous driving convictions were put on the record of Catherine Nora Forde (23), Ballaghblake, Curracloe.

Details of the offences, all committed the one date in May of 2014, were given at a previous court sitting.

She was also convicted of a couple of counts of failure to stop for gardaí on the same occasion.

She was under the influence of drugs at the time, an offence which Judge Gerard Haughton marked with a fine of €300.

He also formally banned Ms Forde from driving until the year 2020.

The court heard an assurance from solicitor Tim Cummings that the defendant, who had no prior convictions, has since put her life in order.

She drew lone parent's allowance, worked part-time and was taking further education, the District Court was informed.

She had attended Ais Eirí rehab and continued to take part in an after-care programme.
