A few times back when I was younger and going through my exhibitionist phase. Some examples I can think of is walking out of the shower with my towel covering my face pretending I did not know the removalist was packing up things in my bed room. With a different removalist, pretending to be sleeping naked on top of the bed knowing he would walk in. Leaving change room door not locked and stand there naked until someone open the door. My husband helped me to do accidental flash by opening change room door when people were waiting outside. Doing nude photo sessions out doors and we see someone wa Doing nude photo sessions out doors and we see someone walking along the trail but we continue and pretend we don't see them coming. Walking around naked in hotel room knowing people can see inside but pretend we don't see them. After a few bad experiences when men read more into the situation than me just having some innocent fun showing off, I stopped doing anything like this any more. When I was a very young 16 or 17 I met a girl about the same age who was very attractive, flirtatious and FUN!
Brian McInerney BL, counsel for McGreene, told Ennis Circuit Court that his client "found himself unexpectedly confronted with circumstances that no red-blooded man would wish to be confronted with". He picked up the Baileys bottle and he ejected Mr Bracken from the premises in fairly short order," Mr McInerney said. Mr Bracken also sustained bruising around his right eye and had a small wound to the left frontal region of his head. Det-Gda Heaslip said neighbours in the area had noticed a commotion but added: "No local person was willing to give an account of what had occurred on that night. Mr Bracken formed a view that they weren't in a relationship at that point in time. He said that that night Mr Bracken "was out socialising with the lady for a considerable period of time including taking a leisurely spin around the sights of Kilkee". Mr McGreene returned unannounced and he found this strange naked gentleman in his bed. He added that Mr Bracken's mother later came to get her son's clothing and McGreene threw it out of the top window. Mr McInerney said the circumstances of the assault "would be highly unusual in terms of criminality and the nature of the circumstances quickly spread around Kilkee".
In evidence, Detective Garda Paul Heaslip stated that Mr McGreene returned to his home at 4am where he found Mr Bracken fully naked in his bed with his fiance who also lived at the address. The medical report found that Mr Bracken also sustained bruising around his right eye and had a small wound to the left frontal region of his head. He is very discreet, very polite. Heaslip stated that neighbours in the area had noticed a commotion with reported loud noises and shouting while Mr Bracken was being assaulted. Mr McGreene returned to his bedroom unannounced and he found this strange naked gentleman in his bed. The community made their own judgment. Mr McGreene has been on remand in prison since October concerning the two offences.
