A disqualified motorist has a due date in court after Gardaí in Dublin stopped a van en route to France for a winter holiday.

When stopped as part of Operation Fanacht, Gardaí found the rogue motorist to be driving without a driving licence or insurance.

Gardaí arrested the motorist while the van was confiscated.

Taking to social media, the @GardaTraffic Twitter account said: “Gardaí temporarily attached to Store Street Station on #OperationFanacht stopped a disqualified driver at Dublin Port heading to France on holidays. No driving licence, no insurance. Van seized, driver arrested #StayHomeStaySafe #HoldFirm.”

The arrest comes as Taoiseach Micheál Martin confirmed yesterday that Ireland’s Level 5 restrictions will stay in place until at least March 5th – an extension of six weeks.
