Twas De Bacon And Cabbage Wot Done It



Killarney District Court, Kerry

Anne Lucey, in the Irish Times, reports:

“A 50-year-old man told a court he was “bribed” with the offer of home cooked bacon and cabbage to go to his mother’s house and cut the back lawn. He insisted he ate the meal on the porch and believed he did not breach an order not to enter her home.”

“Donal Cosgrave of West End, Rathmore, Co Kerry, was arrested for breach of contravening a barring order on July 1st. Mr Cosgrave was willing to produce the shoes with the grass still on them, to back-up his story, Killarney District Court was told on Tuesday.”

“Mr Cosgrave said he only called to his mother’s home at Woodlawn Estate, Killarney because she offered to cook him bacon and cabbage if he cut the grass. In effect it amounted to a bribe because no-one could resist his mother’s cooking, he said.”

Padraig O’Connell, solicitor, told the court the shoes were in an evidence bag, in court.”

    Saw this on the IT facebook page last night and could not stop laughing.
    I also googled “best bacon and cabbage in Dublin”. Love it and haven’t had it in years. Gonna get me some this weekend!

      Save me the research – which is the best?

      I seem to remember the Avoca in Kilmacanogue doing an excellent version. That is if you want to eat in a motorway car park.

        Apparently, the Winding Stair does a really good one but it’s on the pricey side. Best inbetweener i could see was O’Neills on Chapel street. Always decent pub grub in there.

          Green 19 on Camden St does a very nice bacon, cabbage & mash for a tenner. Delicious.

    2. Spaghetti Hoop

      Easiest thing in the world to make yourself.
      Savoy cabbage is best – salt, pepper and grated nutmeg.
      Plus use real butter (on the spuds, André).

    Typical outside the pale carry on. When will the savages learn, just say no to C&B.

      Inside the pale he would have just stabbed his mother and took the b & c. Damn efficient howiyas !!

        It’s a sad day. The inner city is ruined with the C&B. The kids will do anything for it.

      Thank you! Just racking my brain there trying to think how I missed this building in 12 years of visiting Killarney every 4-6 weeks!

    In fairness, if it was Chicken Tikka, ya wouldn’t have seen sight nor sound of him.

    Wait, that’s an ABBA song isn’t it? ♫ Sing a new song Chicken Tikka….♫
    (Twas in the radio when the alarm went off, damn earworm for the rest of the day)

    Why is there a baring order on him? He is obviously a scumbag with a history of criminal activity.

    Not to interfere with the facts, nor to decry BS for not double checking their sources (good journalist techniques), but I think you will find that your picture shows Tralee Court House.

    Just sayin’
