The garda said that the tractor was driving over continuous white lines and driving through yield signs and flaunting road traffic laws.

He also said that the tractor crashed into a wall at Upper Cappa Drive in Kilrush town at around 5.30am and continued on its journey.

The garda said that the tractor was coming towards him with agricultural forks at the front.

He said that the tractor continued on to a farm-yard, where O’Brien appeared not to be able to stop the tractor and the garda was able to arrest him.

Counsel for O’Brien, Brian McInerney BL told the court: “Even for the hard-working farming community in west Clare, the presence of a Massey Ferguson tractor at 5am in the morning on the roads would be unusual.”

He added: “Even more unusual – but not unique – would be the sight of a Massey Ferguson tractor in a housing estate at that hour of the morning.

“This was an old Massey Ferguson – they keep going forever but they get louder and louder the older they get.”
