A 42-year-old man was fined £60 last Thursday at Banbridge Magistrates Court for a speeding offence.

John Samuel Thomas Geoghegan, Legananny Road, Loughbrickland, was also given three points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard he was detected travelling at 41mph in a 30mph zone at Scarva Street, Loughbrickland, on January 26 this year.

A solicitor representing the defendant said he just had not realised his speed.

He had no points on his licence and his last previous conviction was over 20 years ago.
