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.”

Was doing my occasional Google Earth nostalgia trip back home and took these screengrabs. Thought this might be of some interest, curiosity value…I’ve heard some people say Tokyo is quite a green city. It’s not.
