A CAR WAS caught by gardaí twice this evening for speeding in the space of half an hour.

Clare Traffic Corps caught the driver speeding in two different towns in the county.

Gardaí said that the driver was fined for both offences.

Separately today, Sergeant Michael Keevans issued an appeal asking all motorists to be careful and slow down on M7 between junction 9 and 10 due to road works.

A special 60 km/h speed limit is in place while work is ongoing.
