Shopowner Strikes Back With Shock Tactics

John O’Connor has installed a device at Custy’s Traditional Irish Music Shop that will give anyone who relieves himself on the premises an electric shock.
He also put up a sign warning ‘Electric Current in Operation – Urinate at Your Own Peril’ to let revelers’ know of the consequences of what he called "al-fresco urination".
The music shop is located on Cooke’s Lane off Ennis’s main street, O’Connell Street and Mr. O’Connor described installing the electric shock treatment as "total desperation".
"I hate having to do this, but I’m not willing every Monday to be confronted with human detritus where I have to clean up human feces, urine and vomit. Sometimes it can take 40 minutes to clean it all up."
He said last Monday was particularly bad when the urine seeped into the building.
