AN ALLEGED ‘drunk in charge’ case against Donegal Senator Brian O’Domhnaill has been adjourned again at Letterkenny District Court.
The Fianna Fail politician was not present in court on Monday, but was represented, in Irish, by his solicitor, Mr John Cannon.
The charges against Senator O’Domhnaill (37) of Killult, Falcarragh, include being drunk in charge of a vehicle as well as hit-and-run, failing to report an occurrence, hit-and-run failing to remain at the scene, and hit-and-run failing to give appropriate information.
The incident is alleged to have happened at Tullygay on the outskirts of Letterkenny on September 2, 2013.
Mr Cannon asked Judge Paul Kelly to have the case adjourned as they were still waiting on a ruling to be made in an ongoing high court case.
Judge Paul Kelly, who responded in Irish, agreed to Mr Cannon’s request and adjourned the case back to Letterkenny District Court on January 18, 2016 for mention.
