Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. What I would advise you to do is to get yourself a solicitor and to get the matter re-entered in the District Court to get the fine set aside and an appropriate penalty applied. Be aware at the outset, that the best that can happen is that the fine will be reduced, as some fine is going to be payable anyway because the parking fine it due.
2. However, with the aid of a good solicitor your daughter will get the fine knocked down to 50 euros. However, you will also have to pay the solicitor 50 euros for representing you in court on the day in question. However, this is preferable to a 300 euro fine.
3. Once your solicitor re-enters the case, it will put the local Superintendent on notice that the penalty is being challenged. So, there will be no issue about prison whilst the case is ongoing. So don't worry about this.
