A man who drove in breach of three disqualifications has been given one month in prison.

Guntars Brants, 37, of 25 Cosby Avenue, Fairgreen, Portlaoise, was charged with having no licence or insurance, on June 6 last.

The accused had two previous convictions for drink driving.

Judge Staines noted that he was in breach of three disqualification orders.
