It turned out he lived in Catford, his Mum had been bombed out and there wasn’t a witch in the derelict house.

Fifteen people were arrested at the weekend in the city in connection with on-street begging. Communications officer with NASC Jennifer DeWan said she believes the issue is becoming more prevalent in Cork.
