A COUNTY Limerick man has pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing the death of a 16-year-old girl more than two years ago.

Peter Brouder, aged 23, of Castleview Estate, Strand entered his guilty plea when he was arraigned at Limerick Circuit Court earlier today.

Amy St John from Woodfield, Newcastle West, died two days after she was critically injured in a two-car collision near the village of Feoghanagh on July 10, 2010.

Brouder was driving a 00-registered Honda Civic in which Amy was a back-seat passenger. Nobody else was seriously injured in the collision.

Following an application from David Sutton SC, Judge Carroll Moran adjourned sentencing until January 25, 2013
