Naas Court heard how a homeless man who used his car to sleep in got banned from driving for two years.

The 23-year-old man appeared before Naas District Court facing charges of not having tax, insurance and a driving licence, in 2017.

Evidence was given that the accused had 11 previous convictions for not having insurance and tax,  and in 2017 was banned from driving for four years.

Defence Solicitor Aisling Murphy said: "At the time he was homeless, he was living in his car, he went on to become an apprentice mechanic."

She outlined how the accused's aunt was in court and that he had been caring for his mother up to three months ago, when she passed away.

Judge Desmond Zaidan convicted and fined the accused €250 for the non display of tax and not having an NCT.

He was banned from driving for two years. For not having a driving licence, he was convicted and fined €450.

For failing to produce insurance he was convicted and fined €400.
