Accordingly, I would suggest you find out the name of the individual Garda or person who sought to serve you with the papers and sue them personally for assault for the manner in which they threatened you and flung the papers in your direction. This is the best course of action. Secondly, you can also seek to have service set aside as not being properly effected. However, do be aware that most judges have an extreme aversion to anyone who seeks to suggest they will not engage in the legal process by attempting to evade service.
