Man Loses His Appeal Against 5 Year Jail Sentence For Dangerous Driving Causing Death.

: 01/22/2019 - 15:14

A Mayo man has lost his appeal against his 5 year jail sentence for dangerous driving causing death.

40 year old Declan Moran of Carrentrilla, Ballina had been drinking when he performed an illegal u turn and killed oncoming motorcyclist Martin Wynne.

It happened on the N26 at Ballinahaglish, Ballina in May 2016.

Declan Moran fled the scene on foot and was arrested a few hours later and was found to be over the drink driving limit.

The Court of Appeal said the 5 year sentence was entirely appropriate given the accused has a previous conviction for drink driving.
