He was disagreeing with what i've been saying throughout this thread without being able to back it up.I've been in the college 13 years,when it comes to that scumbag matubara i know what i'm talking about.
That guy is still knocking around????? I was there 9 years ago and he frequented the arts block and the courtyard even then! He's a mysterious character alright, I heard he was a lecturer many moons ago who fell out with the college, was something to do with books/old manuscripts alright. I heard that academia was his life and that's why he can't leave the place. We heard that he sometimes (rarely) has messages for certain students. He would write out little notes, fold them up and slip them into their hands - never heard what they said.
Degsy???????? 13 years????????? Student or Lecturer??????????
Who told ya???????
I think you mentioned it somewhere. Either that or I have powers.
Seriously though, If you're not a lecturer or a student, not many people would hang around for that long, except for staff. To guess a librarian was an obvious choice.
Do I get a prize?
snicker - look what I started
Degsy, I thought you were one of those eternal student types!
It never dawned on me that, other than being a lecturer, you might work there doing something else!
I'd imagine a librarian in TCD has their job cut out for them.
Can you deny or confirm the 'Mat the Jap in Library Incident' rumour/urban legend/fact then?
He was banned from the library for tearing pages out of books and writing notes in the margins.He also physicaly assaulted staff and then launched a campaign against named staff in the library in one of the student rags.He's mentally unstable and violent.
If he was in the library at all, he must have been a student or lecturer then (or librarian -joke)
Was this long ago?
He was here in the 80's and got banned in the 90's..he's been shuffling around ever since.
He hangs out in the lgb soc room a lot these days.
Can me add the other retarded thread to this retarded thread.
As if the man wasn't already surrounded by enough rumours, there is new one. It has been said that he died two nights again - 27th of November 2007! Is this true? Don't let it be true!
Matt's first recorded appearance was the academic year of 1979/80. I was there...
