David McSavage has finally been convicted after refusing to pay his TV license.
The Savage Eye star, who’s real name is David Andrews, previously refused to pay the TV license fee as he wasn’t satisfied with the way RTÉ spent taxpayers’ money.
The TV star, who also said that he would “have no problem doing a night or two in Mountjoy” in protest at the quality of RTÉ’s programmes, was landed with a fine of €125 yesterday – after not showing up to court.

According to the Irish Mirror, Judge O’Neill said “Very well, no appearance, convict and fine €125,” at Dublin’s District Court yesterday.
It was also ruled that David would have to pay the fine within three months, as well as an additional €50 in legal costs.
Back in April, David told the court that, “The reason I didn’t pay it is I have genuine concerns as to the use RTÉ makes of taxpayers’ money. I have expressed these concerns in other forums and I’ve been advised to pay the fine.”
