Gaol

He hi-tailed it up the sideways, the prospect of lightheadedness cursing his every step. ‘poor fellow knifed with a Sword… a man resembling a dog taken into custody. No reply when charged. Silly dog probably jumped up on his lap’. Detective Garda Nolan Falls told the court that the man had a deep voice and scratched himself with his hind leg. The people of Swords, Co Dublin, unable to contain their anger cajoled the felon, a few throwing bricks and stones, bouncing them off his droopy-eared head.

A court reporter was heard to say, ‘the man appeared to be lightheaded, thrusting his arms out from his sides in a vain attempt to balance himself’. The Swords constabulary, under the command of Garnet Galsworthy, attempting to calm the man knocked into the alleyway behind the Gaol, the felon’s face inviting several well-placed kicks. Detective Garda Nolan Falls told the court that the man had made no reply following the incident.
