A motorist in Kilkenny that made an 'ill-timed departure' from their vehicle in Kilkenny will now be forced to face the consequences.

A garda on bike patrol in Kilkenny City yesterday 'came across the owner of this car as it backed out in front of traffic on James' Street this morning', according to local gardaí.

"The car was exhibiting no evidence of insurance with the driver being disqualified."

Court to follow.
