Hello everyone, this is my first post to Boards :-) Ive just been reading over previous posts and was pondering on the characters that have graced these streets in the past, and such an abundance of characters there 'have been', but what i'm trying to think of the characters 'that are'... I'm sure this town has an abunance of them, and i am not talking about the obvious men (and occaisional women) that are down on there luck and taken to the drink, im talking about those colourful characters that maybe have been working in the same place for 40 years or have the same routine everyday or just have tall tales to tell, there is no stereotype on these people, they are who they are. They are the characters that are the backbone of this beautiful city. Forgive me if this has been done before, but if not give them a mention and maybe tell a story, their story, or your story... or anything at all, use it as a celebration of the people of Waterford.

The guy with the long scraggy grey hair that walks around town, hands behind his back. Usually wears a beige trenchcoat. I've heard he's called 'Sausages' as he'll chase you if you shout that at him. Anyone know if that's true?

years ago there was harry miller and fella called cashin they were allways together and were just known as "cashin & miller"
harry miller had grey hair and a long grey beard and someone said "harry would you do santa clause for christmas" he replied " i would if you hold him down"
in more recent times we had the legends known as "multivan" and "newportwex" whose intellect is only surpassed by their popularity
