A LIMERICK man has been disqualified from driving for six years for a drug driving incident in the city earlier this year.

It was accepted by the defence that this was 25-year-old Stephen Gleeson’s third conviction for driving while intoxicated contrary to Section 49 of the Road Traffic Act.

Gleeson, of Hyde Road, Limerick pleaded guilty at Limerick District Court to driving while intoxicated at Lord Edward Street on June 19 last. Traces of cannabis had been found in a sample of urine provided by Gleeson on that date, Insp Seamus Ruane, pictured above, told the court.

He was disqualified from driving for six years for the offence and banned for two years for driving without insurance on the same date.
