The Right To Drive

The G8 summit to be held in County Fermanagh I was just remembering what else the place is famous for.
Besides plenty of bombings and other terrorist related murders County Fermanagh has lots of sheep but very few people. It has the least amount of people in all the 6 counties but still,  Matthew Broderick the movie star managed to knock doon and kill two of them in 1987.
He was driving on the wrong side of the road (the right hand side) when his rented BMW collided with a Volvo.
Anna Gallagher aged 30 and her Ma Margaret Doherty aged 63 died instantly.

Broderick and his gurlfriend Jennifer Grey had minor injuries. Imagine that, a movie star driving around the least populated county in Northern Ireland and he kills 2 people. Shite for all involved but what a weird fuck off thing to have happened.

After pleading guilty to a charge of careless driving he was fined $150 or £100.
