TRAVELLER RAN AMOK WITH SLASH HOOK AT FOUR IN THE MORNING.
John Street only comes alive at four in the morning! You even had the Rose of Tralee and her boyfriend there refusing to fight at four in the morning ,and now this latest of young Carty threatening the chipper owner and his son with a slash hook.
The British were clever – they actually maintained a police station on John Street! Maybe the gardai might move into Dr. Mitchell’s house? Nicknamed from time immemorial as “Blood Street” by the locals, and for good reason, John Street needs a continuous police presence. Drugs and drink are no excuse for such horrific behaviour. The sentence in this case was far too soft, it will have no effect at all.
