A Portarlington man has been disqualified for drink driving.

James Coman, 66, of 3 Station Court Road, Portarlington, was charged with drink driving, at Bracklone Street, Portarlington, on March 31 last.

The accused had no previous convictions.

Defence, Mr Philip Meagher said that the accused had been at a match the night before the offence and got involved in celebrations with drink taken.

The accused was convicted and fined €300 and disqualified from driving for two years.
