Man gets driving ban after failing to appear in court

A Letterkenny man who failed to appear at court for a hearing has been disqualified from driving for a year.

Sean Kelly (37), with an address at Gleann Tain Manor, was due before Letterkenny District Court.

Garda witness said that Kelly was stopped driving a white Transit van in Kerrykeel in June 2020.
