It is illegal for a student to walk through Trinity College without a sword.

In Trinity college students can demand a glass of wine at any time during an exam, provided they are wearing their sword.

It is illegal to smoke any form of tobacco on Grafton St. in Dublin


Surely the first 2 are made up?

Holders of the freedom of Dublin have the right to pasture sheep on common ground within the city boundaries. This includes College Green and St Stephen's Green. (this right was exercised as a publicity stunt by Bono when he brought sheep in to St. Stephens Green).

think he technically broke the law as you're supposed to pasture your own sheep but he borrowed some

also - not allowed smoke tobacco on grafton street? - that'd be quite ironic given that all 3 of the main tobacconists in dublin are on grafton street!

None of these are true. Certainly the first two are not.

Edit: technically TCD students are supposed to adhere to a dress code (academic dress) and even "doff their cap" to many lecturers, but obviously these antiquated rules are overlooked. The rules you state just don't exist, though.

You must hold a TV licence for any device capable of receiving TV signals even if you don't use it or it's broken or you just watch dvds on it.

You can drive around on public roads without ever proving your competency at driving.

The Tippling Act 1735 prohibits a publican from pursuing a customer for money owed for any drink given on credit.
The law was aimed at stopping landlords demanding ale money owed to them by servants who resorted to robbing their masters to pay their debts.
