And to other news. In a surprise development , the well-known radio presenter Pat Kenny was last night shot in Limerick’s notorious Moyross estate.
In town to patronise the locals on his Radio 1 morning show from Moyross Community Centre, Kenny ignored the advice of community representatives and went walkabout after dark in the estate renowned worldwide for its violence. It’s understood that a group of youths wearing hoodies approached the presenter as he bought a packet of instant mash from the local shop, and accused him of being a lackey of the capitalist / imperialist conspiracy to oppress the working classes. They then shot him.
Praising the development, Miniature for The Fence, Willie O’Dea issued a statement in which he said

Meanwhile, Pat Kenny, speaking from his hospital bed, laughed off the whole incident.
I was a bit surprised to be shot twice in the head, he remarked, but I’d say it was all just bravado.
