Recently, I was looking at clippings from the Connaught Telegraph from September 1964. The Westport court briefs from September 11, 1964, were enlightening:-
* no rear white light on a vehicle 10/-
* no red rear light on a bicycle 15/-
* unlighted bicycle 15/-
* exceeding the speed limit by 10 mph 2
* exceeding the speed limit by 6 mph 10/-
* parking more than 10 inches from the kerb 10/-
* drunk and incapable 10/-. The garda who 'proved the offence' said
it was a fair day and the defendant gave no trouble.
* drunk/disorderly and in charge of a child under 7 years 1

I'm guessing, but I think most salaries/yearly incomes were under 3,000 or 4,000 in 1964 ???

Any of our readers willing to tell about the fines they incurred for unlighted bicycles etc ??
