Senator O Domhnaill, 38, from Killult, Falcarragh, did not appear at Letterkenny District Court this morning.

The court heard the case cannot be heard until the outcome of another similar case is heard before the High Court.

Judge Paul Kelly said the State have yet to file a defence in that case.

The charges against Senator O Domhnaill include drink-driving as well as hit and run failing to report an occurrence, hit and run failing to remain at the scene and hit and run failing to give appropriate information.

The incident is alleged to have happened at Tullygay outside Letterkenny on September 2nd, 2013.

Senator O Domhnaill’s solicitor John Canon addressed the court in Irish as did Judge Paul Kelly.

Garda Inspector Goretti Sheridan said she did not have full Irish and would not be involved in the case when it is hard.

 

The case was adjourned until July 20th next.
