"Due to the excessive speed he wasn’t offered a fixed penalty,” a Prosecutor said.

Killen’s barrister Mr Conor Lunny said his client, who is a developer, had taken the day off work to attend court. “That shows how seriously he takes the matter.”

Mr Lunny said he has a five-year driving record with “no blemishes whatsoever”.

District Judge Michael Ranaghan said: “That speed puts you right on the cusp of an immediate disqualification but I will give credit for your plea.”

He imposed six penalty points and fined him £200 plus the Offender Levy of £15.
