The disqualified driver was one of several stopped by the Buncrana roads policing unit on Friday for a range of offences.

A fixed charge penalty notice was issued meaning the driver faces a fine of €80 and will receive three penalty points.
“Please slow down. The good weather has arrived and as a result, a lot more people are out walking and cycling. Be cautious,” a Garda spokesperson warned.
Another vehicle was stopped and a fixed charge penalty notice was issued to the driver and passenger who were not wearing their seatbelts.
Gardaí also stopped a vehicle being driven by a learner driver who was unaccompanied with no learner plates displayed. The vehicle was seized and a fixed charge penalty notice will be issued.
