If you were on Twitter on Wednesday evening, you may have seen David Brady asking if anyone had seen a Black BMW 520. His car - he believed at the time - has been stolen. Ten minutes later, he tweeted that it had been found.
At Off The Ball's Roadshow in the Olympia on Thursday night, the former Mayo footballer told the full story behind what had happened.
Brady had parked his car in the Harcourt St. area. When he came back two hours later, he thought his car had been stolen.
I was in Harcourt St, Hatch St. last night for two hours drinking water - there was no beer on board.
When I was parking my car, I parked it beside an Aviva van. There were two dodgy geezers - now, they were not from Belmullet - I made sure that I pressed the button twice.
I came out, the fuckin' car was gone.
I'm being serious with this point - I had a lot of work I did with patient records. I had four new suits from Benetti to wear tonight, tomorrow night, Saturday night and Sunday night. I had shoes, computers, laptops - the whole lot. And two tickets, and they weren't even mine.
I nearly shat myself.
Shortly after calling some Garda friends, Brady realised - following a chat with some women who he believed had parked in the same spot as him - that he was in safely situated around the corner.
I train a little bit with Westmanstown, it's the Garda club. I rang the guards, rang the Superintendent, rang the boys in the drug squad. Then I tweeted - I said 'you know what, someone might spot it.'
Next thing the ladies who had parked in my spot were going back to the car. I said to the ladies, 'Can you give me an idea what time you parked the car?' Because I parked my car at 7:10, I can guarantee it wasn't towed because the guards asked me. Next thing the ladies say 'half six'.
I said, 'But I parked beside the Aviva van at ten-past seven'. They said, 'no, no we had the thing on [parking ticket] at half six, a three-hour one'. So they weren't lying.
I said, 'you couldn't have?' I went, 'oh Jaysus'. There was a facade, an Aviva Insurance building. I went around the side and there was about 15 Aviva vans with my car in the middle of them.
Brady finished by adding, 'I have to say, I made a complete fool of myself.'
