Oooh, yer in sh!te now. Some lads are heading around to have words later. I heard the local MC's don't like guys with chaps and skull patch's giving them a bad name
Can anyone list some of these MC clubs here in Ireland? Any members of them here? I'm intrigued about this as it would never have crossed my mind to watch my clothing based on the reaction of any of these groups. I'm having difficulty equating the easy rider image with some lads from Cashel to be honest
To the best of my knowledge there are six Irish based MC clubs four of them being part of the Alliance.
Devils Desciples MC
Chozen Few MC http://homepage.eircom.net/~chosenfew/HOME.htm (Some of these guys split up to become part of the HA.)
Brotherhood MC (Limerick & Clare)
The International MC clubs
Outlaws MC Ireland. http://www.outlawsmc-ireland.com/homepage.htm
North Tyrone Chapter,
West Coast Chapter
Hells Angels MC Belfast http://www.hellsangelsbelfast.com/hamc_belfast.html
Bloody eck if they were that narky back then about a choice of badge I'd hate to have seen the arguments over Oasis vs Blur
No.1 on an MC charter is no tassles
no tassles! Thats just wrong on so many levels.
Does that also include the Black Widows
Gotta be honest, now and again I have shared a chat and a pint with the DD's and the Chosen Few ( they may have split up since The Chosen Few Belfast became Hells Angels ), and to be honest their's a lot of bullsh1t put out about them, all sorts of acustations playing the hard man, etc. In all the time I've know any of them I couldn't say it about them, well, that's just my experience anyway, though I have to say I have seen the special branch stopping and harrassing them, the guards keep quite a large presence at the Gathering at the Man of War, think it's a bit over the top itself, though I'm sure some of them enjoy the notoriety !!!
Obviously in America and in some countries like Holland, Denmark etc back patch rivalry is a sometimes very dangerous and indeed, deadly matter. ( BTW, I'm not a memeber of a backpatch club or ever have been, though I've got plenty of club rally's/gatherings patches, Isle of Man, AC/DC, Slayer etc on my jacket )
But don't club patches only become an issue when it's 1% clubs ?? Anyone from Banner MCC - what's the story ??
The Banner MCC club patch is the "Dolmen" Ie a couple of rocks placed on top of each other and goes back over 30 years. Two former members had the bright idea to have the club patch on their backs. The Roadtramps turned up in Ennis at the Lifford bar and requested them to remove this patch immediatly from the back of their jackets. The patches were removed end of story.
Is it a registered trademark or something? If not, I'd have told these characters to p!ss off.
As above, more fool them for doing what a couple of clowns said. Seriously, where do these lads think they live? The friggin wild west?
Limerick city is the wild west
A set of crossed pistons is a trademark? Limerick is the wild mid west.
Maybe it's a country thing but I can't imagine anyone in Dublin approaching me and telling me to take a patch off my back.
