Senator Brian O’Domhnaill was not present in court this morning but was represented, in Irish, by his solicitor.
The charges against 37-year-old Senator O’Domhnaill of Killult, Falcarragh, include being ‘drunk in charge’ of a vehicle as well as hit-and-run, failing to report an occurrence, hit-and-run failing to remain at the scene, and hit-and-run failing to give appropriate information.
The incident is alleged to have happened at Tullygay on the outskirts of Letterkenny on September 2, 2013.
Mr O'Domnhaills solicitor asked Judge Paul Kelly to have the case adjourned.
Judge Kelly, who responded in Irish, agreed to the request and adjourned the case back to Letterkenny District Court on May 18.
