Limerick – A window-smashing incident occurred at Lipton’s establishment on George’s Street, as a man requested tea and sugar for a Christmas box and was denied. In response, he intentionally smashed the plate-glass window, causing damages valued at around £12. Later in the evening, Constable Cassidy arrested Michael Leo, recognizing him by the sound of his voice. Leo admitted to committing the offense. Additionally, a man named Leamy, Leo’s brother-in-law, was arrested for assaulting Lipton’s manager during the same incident. Both were taken into custody.
