A teenager allegedly caught driving without insurance has been ordered not to get behind the wheel for the duration of his court case.

Daniel Paun (18) has also been ordered to stay out of the Blanchardstown area, except for court appearances.

Judge David McHugh remanded him on bail to appear before the court again on a date next month.

The accused, with an address at Market Square, Newcastle, Co Dublin, is charged with driving without insurance or a licence.

The incident allegedly took place at Castlegrange Park, Clonee, October 24.

Sergeant Maria Callaghan told Blanchardstown District Court that gardaĆ­ had no objections to bail, subject to a number of conditions.

Willing

Defence solicitor Sandra Frayne said the accused was willing to agree to the bail terms.

As part of his bail conditions, he must sign on twice a week at his local garda station in Clondalkin.

The accused has been ordered not to drive any mech- anical propelled vehicle while the court case is continuing.

Judge McHugh also ordered Mr Paun to stay out of the Dublin 15 area, except for court appearances.

Ms Frayne noted that the accused had family there.

Judge McHugh ordered the disclosure of any documents in relation to the matter and adjourned the case.

Mr Paun has not yet indicated how he is pleading to the charges.

The court heard he was working, and Judge McHugh also assigned Ms Frayne on free legal aid.

Mr Paun did not address the court during the short hearing.
