Barry Cowen at the wheel in 2016
It has emerged that Mr Cowen, then a Fianna Fáil TD, also appeared before Dublin District Court in June 2016 on a speeding charge. He was fined €200 for breaking the special 60kmh limit at Palmerstown in Dublin in July 2015.
The minister will make a statement in the Dáil on the drink-drive matter this evening as the Government seeks to end to the controversy.
He’s in so much trouble.
