“Sarah is good people,” Green stated of the victim. “She helps others. Everyone owes her money.

According to the Post, the boyfriend was holding knives in each hand when responding officers approached him, and they used stun guns on him when he refused to drop the weapons.

Mike Lambe, 62, a bar regular, described McNally as a “sweet, innocent girl from Longford,” a county in central Ireland. She had only worked at the pub for a year.

Green told the Daily News that McNally worked as a prison officer in the Emerald Isle before moving to the States.

“She was innocent!” claimed Lambe, who lives just two blocks from the tavern and says the street is frequently plagued by drug sellers and users.

“It’s been getting worse and worse,” he told the media.
