No traffic offences for him...

Barry Keoghan has been disqualified from driving for two years after admitting to a garda he was using a car without insurance.

He is currently working in the US so did not attend Killarney District Court where he faced Road Traffic Act charges

The judge was told that Mr Keoghan has a total of 11 previous convictions, all under the Road Traffic Act.

He convicted Mr Keoghan, fined him €250 and disqualified him from driving for two years.

 

David Beckham has employed the lawyer known as Mr Loophole as he fights a speeding charge.

Beckham was clocked at 59 mph in a 40 zone last January and Mr Loophole will argue that the legal notice informing him of the charge arrived too late and therefore was not valid. Beckham accepted that he was the driver and that he was speeding, but contested the charge based the 14 day limit under which a notice of intended prosecution must arrive.

He explained that Bentley had loaned the vehicle to Beckham and that the letter had arrived with them a day after the law permits.

He will be tried at Wimbledon magistrates' court on 27 September.
