A pub in Co. Kildare has recorded CCTV footage of a woman putting glass in to her mouth and pretending to choke on it.
She then tells bar staff the glass was in her food and she had accidentally eaten it.
The incident happened at Judge Roy Beans on June 22nd.

The Vintners’ Federation of Ireland believes the footage reveals the extent of the threat facing small businesses as they battle soaring insurance premiums and massive compensation claims.
The owner of the pub Vivian Carroll, says “We checked the CCTV footage and told her the entire incident had been recorded. The Gardaí were called, they took her details and she left. But if it wasn’t for security cameras I could possibly have faced a massive claim”.
