    Did you see the one about the wealthy orthopaedic surgeon last week. A Meath man.

    So pompous.

    Did you read up about what he said and did when the judge was sentencing him. I wish I had a small portion of his arrogance.

    He was a surgeon. I guess to be a surgeon, you have to have unbelievable self-belief. (But not to say you should break the law!)

    Watched this tonight. What a complete and utter fool. He was a general surgeon for the record and he wasn't wealthy. He didn't have a pot to pee in.

    I was surprised his salary was less than £90k.

    His arrogance was his downfall. Presumed the insurance would just pay out, no questions.

    Loved the cop standing next to the fire place.

    He went down for more than just that though. Mortgage fraud too.

    Great show pretty much every week. Often shocked by how lenient the sentences are in the end though.
    Last Mondays as said above was even more interesting than usual as it involved a surgeon from Meath.
    I saw it Monday and was amazed by him, what a horrible arrogant fecker thought he was above the law! Even his solicitor seemed to hate him!
    Rewatched it again this evening with the wife as she hadn't seen it. Still amazed by his arrogance, and glad someone for once on this did get a proper sentence.

    Watched this earlier. What a plonker, came from a very privileged background & thought he could outsmart everyone. Pompous prick.

    Taking photos of the so called stolen items after they were supposed to have been robbed!


  • Registered Users Posts: 145 ✭✭✭ Teepinaw


    He didn't even get to hear his sentence because he was shouting at the judge!! and had to be lead away. I'd say he's getting on well in prison.

    Great show.

    I couldn't believe how things unravelled in the episode about the child porn. That was crazy. And yes, the sentences seemed to be lenient too.

    Wonder what the story is with the estate in Meath? Is that his Irish home?

    I think it was his parents based on what I saw in show.
    Odd they didnt mention the mortgage fraud in the show as well.

    The GPS location showing the photo of the fireplace having been taken in Co Meath wos what done for him Gov.

    He didn't even know about Exif data. Police didn't even have to get forensics on. Just right click and properties. Date they were taken was 3 months after the 'burglary'.

    The other items which were listed as stolen which they found in his basement didn't help him. The police were probably laughing at him behind the scenes. A child would have done a better job. Must of thought that nobody would have questioned him because of his title. Would be very interested to see how that case would play out over here, given the level of apathy that exists in the legal system towards insurance fraud.

    But that fireplace was a set of two.....:rolleyes:
    and he had 3 of those drinks cabinets....all identical apparently.

    Hang on, you're being a bit harsh on him. He did after all have two and three of most items that were stolen but the thieves only stole one of each!


  • Registered Users Posts: 145 ✭✭✭ Teepinaw


    Has anyone got a picture of DC Dave Brecknock beside the fireplace, for a laugh?

    The French are masters of flat pack. :D

    Full of bull!

    When they asked if they could look in the cellar and he said no, he has stuff in there that he doesn't want people to see. Yeah, the stolen goods!

    Also, his last stab at getting away with it* when they addressed him as Dr and he turns to his solicitor and says "I've been addressed incorrectly" :D

    *I'm sure he tried every trick after the program seeing as it took 2 trials.

    Plus they didnt take any of his wifes jewellery.
    Oh and they took apart a huge fireplace in the basement to take it out and steal it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,345 ✭✭✭ Wheety


    Just thinking of when the cops arrived in Ireland and there was no one at the station.

    Then when they found some evidence, they broke out the Viscount biscuits. :rolleyes:

    Family home. Daddy was a famous surgeon,his brother is a GP too.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,046 ✭✭✭ Berserker


    The episode was full of great little moments. Laughed out loud when he asked the officer for her pen. Did anyone else catch that moment in the interview--(I think it was sometime around the "I'd like to go home now "point, when he addressed the two female officers as "Girls"?

    Searching high and low but I can't find it on Google.

    Saw it last night. Wow, what a prick he was. Glad he got done. He'll get rinsed in prison!


  • Registered Users Posts: 145 ✭✭✭ Teepinaw


    It was on Gogglebox just there.

    Hilarious viewing.

    This guy deserves his own meme.
    McGrath wasn't in the dock to hear the number of years he must serve behind bars. Halfway through the sentencing, he shouted at the judge "You suppressed the information. You have abused your power as a judge."

    McGrath said the jury had not heard the truth and went on: "You talk to me as if I am a child. Shame on you."

    He then told Judge Mensah "You are an abusive, racist and terrible person. Shame on you for suppressing the truth."

    Although 24 hours is a great show, it usually leaves you sad, depressed and angry at the end because of the stories they follow. After watching it for a few years it's nice to have such a satisfying episode.


    Brecknock standing next to the fire place in Meath had us rolling. It's just a shame the 'girls' didn't show him that picture while he was lecturing them on the French having invented flat pack.
