Dartmouth Square near Ranelagh, Dublin 6
“I witnessed a scene straight from Hot Fuzz this morning. Five Gardaí going door-to-door in Dartmouth Square, Dublin 6 investigating the cutting down of a protected tree in the park in recent weeks. They did seem highly embarrassed to be fair. It’s lucky we’re so blessed with an abundance of police resources!”
Is there a swan involved?
Probably. Google maps says there’s a whole Swan Centre just up the road…
Leaf it out, hopefully they’ll get to the root of the theft and twig who the culprit is.
* gets coat
What if the thief’s name is Forrest?
* exits via window
Hopefully a high one.
Special branch are looking for a sap.
Not a bad day t’be out making house to house investigations
Or hanging around the crime scene
‘Surprised there wasn’t more lads signed into the Incident Room
Who cares, it’s only a tree. Is that the general thinking?
Yeah, ah sure begorrah.
Would it be better if one person took fives times as long to investigate?
Who cuts down a protected tree in a park?
People cut down protected trees all the time.
It’s a protected tree species which is illegal to cut down. Therefore, it is a crime. Therefore, the state police investigates said crime on foot of a complaint. This is normal run of events.
No doubt, a worthy and probably well-connected denizen and of Dortmoth Square wrote a stiff letter to the commissioner about this nightmare situation, I mean, the animals cut down a tree, barbaric, what is the world comming to??
Meanwhile, many defective ferals roam freely throughout the rest of the country committing crime after crime…
5 Gardai for 1 hour same as 1 Garda for 5 hours.
There were a few nurses in Coppers last weekend who’d disagree.
Somebody called the copse.
Lovely park. Lovely part of the city. Pity about the people.
