Yes ladies, if Downpatrick chef Anthony Grant happens to turn up in your life, run! You can do better that this little “man”. Much better.
Anthony Joseph Grant, or Anthony J Grant (also uses the name Antiono Grant Jr on Facebook) is a liar, a thief, a scammer and also a drunk.
Along with his girlfriend Karen Harris of Tralee (who was living in Ballyheigue when their scam was exposed after Anthony was arrested in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, having allegedly stolen a car). She sometimes uses the name Karen Ní Earraí on Facebook.
Our little alleged Downpatrick chef was bailed to his parent’s home in Downpatrick before his scheduled appearance in the Coleraine Magistrates Court on a range of charges but in typical Anthony style, he has played the victim and seems to believe his own bullshit.
Everyone else is the villain, he is the victim and he’s telling people that G, the woman he lied to and stole from for months, is a “psycho”.
But we know how he has spoken about his other exes, the awful lies he has told about them. We also know what he said about Karen (oh Karen your ears must have been burning) in an effort to weasel his way in. Because that’s what he is: a little weasel. Look at that photo above: the years have not been kind to that face.
Downpatrick chef, liar and thief
That’s quite a range of talents, isn’t it? Chef (well allegedly, because who would know, he doesn’t appear able to actually hold down a job for more than a couple of days, and has been that way for years). Liar, that’s one he excels at. Same for the thief label.
Oh, and drunk, can’t forget drunk. According to Anthony he was drunk for more than a year, incapable of taking any sort of responsibility for his actions in that time because he is a victim. Poor little Anthony.
And those are probably his better qualities. When things don’t go his way, when his lies come out and people expect him to take responsibility for his appalling behaviour, he resorts to abuse and threats. These threats have included potential assault by his mentally ill brother, and also that he would post intimate photographs online (also known as revenge porn), which is of course illegal. If you have ever been subjected to such a threat, you can find more information here.
