Muff man faces further charges after death driving case concludes

February 13, 2018

A young Muff man, who pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death in July 2015 at the Circuit Court last week, will face more driving charges later this year. 

Seosamh McGonigle, 21, from Glackmore, Muff, faced a range of driving offences at Buncrana District Court, including no insurance, no NCT, bald tyres and driving without a licence.

McGonigle was not present in court, but his solicitor Frank Dorrian said he was anxious to have the current charges against him dealt with after the Circuit Court case.

McGonigle was charged with no insurance, no NCT, a smokey exhaust, driving without a licence, and failing to produce his documents at Ballyderowen, Burnfoot, in February 1, 2015.

He was charged with having four bald tyres, no insurance, no NCT, driving without a licence and having no silencer fitted on his car at Main Street, Buncrana, on March 3, 2015.

He is also accused of having no insurance and failing to produce his documents on June 13, 2015.

“Mr. McGonigle was charged at Letterkenny Circuit Court in Tuesday and he will be sentenced in April,” said Mr. Dorrian explained.

“It is a very serious charge in the Circuit Court and he has pleaded guilty to that. We are anxious to have these dealt with after the Circuit Court case rather than before. I don’t believe it will trouble the court.”

Judge Paul Kelly adjourned all charges against McGonigle until May 10.
