April 11, 2022

A serving member of An Garda Siochána in County Donegal will be “fully contesting” charges of drink driving and dangerous driving in September, Donegal Town District Court heard.

John Gibbons (23) of Bogagh Road, Carrick, Co Donegal is charged with drunk driving at Main Street, Donegal Town on March 19th 2021.

He is also charged with dangerous driving on the same date and at the same location.

When the case was called before Judge Sandra Murphy, in Donegal Town District court today, defence solicitor John Anderson said the case would be fully contested.

He said the case could take up to an hour or an hour and a half.

Mr Anderson asked for the case to be put back to September 26 .

The court heard that there were three witnesses in the case.

Donegal State Prosecutor Ciaran Liddy said the State agreed with the request. The case was adjourned to September 26.

Judge Murphy adjourned the case to that date for hearing.
