In another dramatic twist in the ‘Coffee Wars’ in Newry Lianne McCooey was arrested outside the Cathedral we can reveal.
Ms McCooey was just coming out of the chapel where she leads a daily lunchtime Rosary prayer group when she saw a motorbike PSNI patrol waiting for her outside the Cathedral.
In dramatic scenes a scuffle with the police man ensued after which McCooey was put in handcuffs and lead away to a waiting police car.
One shocked onlooker told Newry Spud:
“I was walking past the Cathedral and heard McCooey’s voice shouting ‘This is war Graeme Finegan you fu**er’. She also threw a right hand hook at the arresting officer much to the dismay of us bystanders. It was all over very quickly but I have a feeling this isn’t the end of the story.”
Nobody from Grounded or McCooey’s could be reached for comment but we do expect an absolute banter filled blackboard from McCooey in the days to come.
