A man has appeared in court charged with endangering the life of a Garda.

Jason Orr appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court accused of ramming Garda Kevin Giles at Lismonaghan in Letterkenny on March 24th, 2018.

Orr, of Glenwood Park, Letterkenny, pleaded guilty to a number of offences on the same date.

The 27-year-old also faces another charge of endangerment on the dual carriageway in Letterkenny and two charges of dangerous driving.

Another charge of drink driving, a charge of breach of duty and driving without insurance or a driving license were also pleaded to.

Barrister for the accused, Ms Fiona Crawford, said her client was no stranger to the courts and is currently serving a sentence at Castlerea Prison.

She said her client was suffering from seizures in prison.

Judge John Aylmer adjourned the case for sentence when full details will be given of the incidents during the next sittings of the court in October.
