A Newry man has spoken out for the first time today about his ‘moment of madness’ after taking his life in his own hands by eating out of Eddie Rocket’s in The Quays Shopping Centre we can reveal.
29 year-old Michael Lard told Newry Spud:
“I don’t know what came over me. I was walking through The Quays and a fleeting moment of madness overtook me and my mind-set switched from being a relatively cautious man to a reckless idiot.
I ordered a cheese burger and chicken wings and after draining the fat from the chips I had enough to put in my oil tank to keep the house going through the forthcoming winter. So I suppose it worked out alright in the end.”
