Bizarre Naas incident is probed by gardai

Naas Garda Station

Gardai in Naas are investigating a bizarre incident which took place in the town yesterday.

A man apparently of East European origin, left a car and began shouting aggressively and  banging on the door of a licenced premises with a golf club. He demanded to see somebody inside; however the premises was closed.

It happened shortly after 3pm when the man approached the premises in a white car from the Jigginstown direction.

The car came to a halt on the incorrect side of the road, right outside the pub. Driving conditions in the area were little short of appalling and the road was covered in packed snow.

A garda, who was on foot patrol in the area at the time questioned the man, who initially denied he had been driving the vehicle.
