“She is 27. On the day in question she was involved in a dispute with her partner. She left the house in a hurry,” said Mr Power.

Judge Marian O’Leary fined Ms Hoyne €300 for driving without a licence. For giving a false name, Ms Hoyne was fined €200.

Judge Marian O’Leary disqualified her from driving for two years and fined her €400 for no insurance.
