Donegal Senator has drink drive case adjourned again

June 21, 2018

A case of alleged drink driving and hit-and-run against a Donegal Senator has been adjourned again.

Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill (40) of Killult, Falcarragh, was not present at Falcarragh District Court when the case was mentioned briefly.

Senator Ó Domhnaill faces four charges out of an alleged incident at Tullyhay, Letterkenny on September 2, 2013.

The charges include drink driving, 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.

Solicitor for Ó Domhnaill, John Canon, addressed the court in Irish, during the brief hearing.

Mr Canon applied to have the case adjourned until later in the year.

Former Fianna Fáil Senator Ó Domhnaill resigned from the past in 2016 and is now an Independent Senator.

Judge Paul Kelly granted the adjournment to 19th September.

The case has now been adjourned 14 times since 2015.
