Gardaí from Thomastown Roads Policing Unit (RPU) stopped a vehicle in the Paulstown area of County Kilkenny this evening.

The vehicle was stopped because the motorist was driving at a speed of 159 km/h.

When an oral fluid test was carried out, the driver tested positive for drug-driving in all four testable categories - cocaine, opiates, benzodiazepines and cannabis. 

"Pending results from the lab, the driver has a serious case to answer," Gardaí noted.
