He was before Judge Patricia McNamara for a restorative justice report.

Hart, aged 36, with an address at Cloonmore Lawn, Tallaght, had pleaded guilty to having no insurance and no driving licence at Kiltipper Road, Tallaght, on June 28, 2016, and at Fortunestown Way, also Tallaght, on August 5, 2016.

The court heard that Hart has 15 previous convictions including three for no insurance.
