The case of a Mountrath woman accused of drink driving was adjourned last week, following a claim that it was another person who was actually driving on the date.

Catherine Hyland, 15 Moanbaun Close, Mountrath, was charged with the offence at Clonenagh, Mountrath, on June 25.

Inspector Aidan Farrelly told the court that there has been “significant developments” in the case, as another person had come forward and said they were driving. The gardaí will check this.

The matter was put back to January 15, 2015, for DPP directions.
