Firstly, we’re not slagging Pat Hickey. In fairness to the man, he is innocent until proven guilty so this article has nothing to do with his case.

We’ll let his status tell the rest of the story below:
“When we were kids The Hickeys were neighbours and the kids were in St Brigids in Castleknock with my sisters and brother..

Don’t drop the soap ;)”
