Fianna Fáil TD guilty of Drink Driving

Fianna Fáil TD Christy O'Sullivan has been banned from driving for a year after pleading guilty to a charge of drink driving. The TD for Cork South West was also fined € 300 at Clonakilty District Court.

He was returning from a race meeting on the June Bank Holiday weekend when he was arrested in Clonakilty at a mandatory alcohol checkpoint being operated by the Garda Traffic Corps.

Judge James McNulty heard that an analysis of a blood sample which O'Sullivan gave showed a concentration of 88mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.
