Silage excuse for missing court

Silage

A FARMER charged with dangerous driving failed to appear in court on  Monday because rain was forecast and he had to get his silage in.
Jack Patrick (21) of Drumbeggan Road, Monea is charged with failing to  stop at the scene of a damage-only accident, failing to report a damage only accident, failing to remain, two counts of dangerous  driving, and two counts of failing to stop for police.
Patrick was due to appear at Enniskillen Magistrates Court on Monday,  however defence barrister Ciaran Roddy, who was acting on behalf of  Patrick’s solicitors, said he had been instructed the defendant was not in court for a “novel” reason.
“Apparently there is to be rain later today,” said Mr Roddy. “He’s a  farmer and he has to attend his silage this morning.”
A spokesperson for the Public Prosecution Service (PPS) said the file  in Patrick’s case was still outstanding, and District Judge Nigel  Broderick agreed to adjourn the case until July 3.


There are fears that, without support, some farmers could go out of business.
