Hi
I received a ticket in the post following a trip to Ireland a couple of weeks ago, 80 Euro fine and 2 penalty points (according the notice).

I am English and live in England.

What happens if i pay the fine and give my details?
What happens if i do nothing?

Thanks

Nothing happens if you ignore it but it will be outstanding, if you return to ireland and get stopped it could be a bit of a balls.
Otherwise if you pay the fine i think the points go on a ghost southern licence so they dont affect your current licence or insurance in england.
I'll await being corrected by someone more knowledgeable

No dont ignore it, I get them regular enough and they will pursue it backed by UK law, pay the fine dont send them your licence and youll not hear anymore about it, but if you dont pay the fine its passed on to be pursued.

Thanks for the replies, i think i'll go with the Decky Q compromise. Should hopefully do the trick. I wouldn't have been concerned had it been mainland Europe, but had a feeling there might be greater co-operation between the Irish and UK Govts on issues like this.
