A Dublin Man Has Been Awarded €4,250 After Biting A Rasher That Was 'Hard Like A Brick'

The judge genuinely advised he should be careful of a crispy rasher rind


A man has been awarded €4,250 after he fractured a tooth on a rasher in a Swords restaurant that he claimed was "hard like a brick."

32-year-old Shane McQuillan was originally awarded €6,500 in general damages and €2,500 in special damages by the court, but this was reduced by Judge Patricia McNamara as she found Mr McQuillan guilty of contributory negligence because he “should have been careful of a crispy rasher rind."

The Swords man took the case against More with Food Ltd at Airside at Dublin Airport after he fractured a molar while eating two sausages and two rashers in a sandwich from the restaurant on March 23, 2013.
