Colonel Cricket’s fate is the same as our modern day Cricket’s – he gets involved with the Paddy’s Pub gang and winds up losing his head, then loses his life. In this case, not metaphorically (common sense and priesthood) but literally (head and life). And in this case, one immediately after the other. And while the Colonel’s result is quite gruesome, at least it was more immediate and final than what our own Cricket has to go through over the months and years.
