A man who drunkenly drove into a local shop in a horse and carriage to buy cigarettes has been fined €250, reports The Mirror.
Danny Connors, 49, appeared at Letterkenny District Court in Co Donegal, which heard the defendant was three and a half times over the drink-drive limit.
The court heard that Connors is currently serving a one-year sentence under the Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013 for going on a celebratory binge after leaving a newborn goat alone on a property with dogs for a celebration.
Danny Connors, 49, of Canal Road Letterkenny, was jailed for 12 months by Judge John Aylmer at Letterkenny District Court last month, reports The Mirror.
Father-of-seven Connor, who has 35 convictions, pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges.
Connors was ordered to complete a safe driving course on June 20, 2021, at 8:55 a.m. after being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol while driving a horse and carriage.
Gardaí said they saw the Connors driving what was described as “a horse-drawn carriage” on Port Road, reports The Mirror.
