Man drove to and from Russia uninsured

A POLISH second hand car dealer, who drove over 3,000 miles from Ireland to Russia and back, was stopped at a Garda check point at Grannagh, Kilmacow, for having no insurance, the District Court heard in Waterford, last week.
The story was told by Waterford solicitor Hilary Delahunty, who said, when the defendant got to Russia, his son was to meet him and return to Ireland with the car.
But the son’s wife was ill in hospital and his father had to drive the vehicle all the way back.
After all those miles on the long journey he unfortunately was stopped at Grannagh, Kilmacow.
Mr. Delahunty said the case reminded him of a Wexford priest, who was chaplain in Kansas Prison in the USA during the forties.
The priest drove across America and put his car on the liner for Ireland.
After crossing the Atlantic he headed for home and as he neared the house he got excited at the prospect of meeting his family.
He crashed the car against the gate pier leading to the house.
Judge Staunton said the defendant Janusz Majdzinski (50) was a decent man and he adjourned the case for 12 months.
If he stayed out of trouble during that time the court would strike out the charge in June 2018.
