A dinner party hosted by the Newry Feminist Association erupted into violence last night after members refused to wash the dishes afterwards.
Police were called to the address in the town after they received calls from worried neighbours. Three women were arrested and charged with violent behavior.
One party-goer, who didn’t want to be named told Newry Spud:
“It was all going so well. We were sat there talking about how shit men are and what the best way to burn your bra is, when all of a sudden, there was an almighty kick-off coming from the kitchen. I went to see what was going on and there were three women fighting.
Washing-up sponges were flying all over the place and at one point, a tea towel was used as a whip to smack this woman in the face. The kitchen was full of dirty plates – it was stinking in there. Not that I’d want to go washing them myself.”
Party-goers were dispersed by police and told to go home and do some knitting. The Newry Feminist Association is planning another dinner party in July, where the topics of discussion are make-up, horses and flowers.
