Church pastor on driving charges 'looking for mercy' at Longford district court

A man who faced a number of driving charges at Longford District Court had his case adjourned, pending a community service report.

Shanks Kaunda, who is now living in Killeshandra and previously resided in Scotshouse, Co. Monaghan, was found to have committed a number of driving offences in Rathcronan, Granard on May 14, 2024.

Sgt Mark Mahon told the court that on that date, Gardai stopped the man at a checkpoint. 

Mr Kaunda produced a driving licence, but it was from South Africa and he had no Irish driving licence.

He was also found to have no car insurance.
