Teen's High-Speed Chase Through Dublin And Kildare To "Meet a Girl" Lands Him in Prison

A judge described his behaviour as "disgraceful".

A 19-year-old, who engaged in a 40-minute high-speed pursuit with up to 10 Garda cars across Dublin and Kildare, claimed upon arrest that he was his way to meet a girl.

Tadhg Keely has been sentenced to three and a half years in prison, with the last year suspended.

According to the Irish Independent, the judge characterised his actions on the roads during the early hours of August 10, 2022, as "disgraceful behaviour."

The teen drove from Tallaght to Ballymore Eustace at speeds of over 160kmh.
