This was known as roaring therapy, or so the one fifth of a doctor said. We shouted at the tops of our voices and men who in a few hours would be walking earnestly to work with umbrellas and brief cases called the gardaí, who had us roar for them in the cells of the Bridewell. We were left off with a caution.
