Jobless dad of four is on six driving charges

A FATHER of four has appeared in court accused of driving without insurance or a driving licence during an incident in south Dublin last year.

Glen Mallon (38) is also alleged to have refused to give his name and address to gardai.

A judge adjourned the matter for four weeks to allow Mallon to speak to his solicitor.

The defendant, with an address at Main Road in Tallaght, appeared before Tallaght District Court accused of driving without insurance or a driving licence.

He is also accused of failing to give his name and address to gardai and of a number of other more minor road traffic matters, including failing to produce his documentation at a garda station within 10 days.

The six summonses relate to an alleged incident at Firhouse Road West in Tallaght on April 11 last year.

Mallon, who is unemployed and on social welfare, was allegedly driving a 2007 Meath-registered vehicle when he was stopped by gardai.

Defence solicitor Padraig O'Donovan said Mallon had not worked for two years.

Judge James McDonnell adjourned the matter for four weeks.
