Irish Mixed Martial Arts s star Charlie Ward has been fined for driving with no insurance as he had no driving licence.

Before last week’s Portlaoise District Court was Charles Ward (38), with an address at Agracar, Mountmellick, charged with having no driving licence or insurance, at the Mountrath Road, Portlaoise, on April 9 this year.
