The niece of fashion designer Ralph Lauren, Jennifer Lauren, who was convicted of intoxication on an aircraft, has left Ireland this morning, Thursday, on board a United Airlines Flight to Newark.
The New York based jewellery designer was yesterday convicted of two charges under the Air Navigation and Transport Act 1973 at a sitting of Ennis District Court, for unruly conduct on board a Delta Airlines flight from Barcelona to JFK in New York.
The Clare Champion has learned that Ms Lauren spent a third night in Shannon, her second at the Shannon hotel The Oakwood Arms, before being able to get a flight out of the country.
Delta Airlines, as a policy, will not fly those involved in such incidents.
Ms Lauren’s passport was returned to her at 5pm on Wednesday after being held by gardai while her case was at hearing.
The United Airlines flight departed Shannon this morning at 9.43am.
