IAN Bailey did not get his day in court as his challenge to Gardai prosecuting him for drug driving was put on hold for legal reasons.
He was charged with a number of drug driving offences after he was stopped at a Garda checkpoint on August 25 last.
The 63-year-old British man – with an address at the Prairie, Liscaha, Schull- fought the four charges brought against him in court last December.
Following legal submissions made by his barrister Emmet Boyle, the case was adjourned to Thursday for written submissions.
However, the Bantry District Court hearing was adjourned for legal reasons and due to the unavailability of the Judge.
