    I think I came across this wan before. Is she 5'6"ish, dark curlyish hair and kinda hefty?? If that her i met (passed) her walking her lab dog down on the disused part of the WSVR in bilberry. It was around where the dog pound is. I was walking against her and when i had passed by, she turned around and shouted some thing like; "did you get tired of looking did ya? you black f*cker! There's no black f*cker going to jump out of the bushes and attack me!......."

    I was shocked, never experienced this kinda thing before while walking, I had gone there many times before. I replied "what are you on about, i didn't do anything to you???" Then she called me a black f*cker once more and continued on her way.
    For the life of me, i can't unterstand why she was calling me a black f*cker. I'm white and irish FFS! This happened last summer.
    Crazy oul bat. All very strange.

    Does she live down that way?
    I thought maybe she did live down there and was pissed off cos people were walking on the tracks behind her home, but now reading this i realise she s just a mad oul wan.

    These are the ones i remember seeing and hearing of:

    How-do man - old geezer who goes around saying how do to passers by. Hilarious. Always around the library and barronstrand st.

    Shammy - Now dead. He used to go around talking truckers CB slang all the time 10-4 10-4. Dead a while now. From around ferrybank. He was found dead in a shed a while back.

    Tramore road man: Allways sitting on a deckchair near the halfway house on the tramore rd, with a pile of dutch gold and cider cans beside him. Always pissed and laughing/shouting at passing cars. Sometimes wearing alternately; a santa suit, full camoflage or more usually a hi vis get-up.

    Neo - a lunatic going around ferrybank usually with a shaved head, and with sunglasses and black trenchcoat. GF said he used to be in McDonalds in town after a night out and they used to send him upstairs to the jacks to find agent smith. Nutter. I think he's moved onto some other style now.

    There was a crazy bum that used to live behind argos/Mcdonalds in the carpark, hold up in the arches under the old city walls.

    Also the guy in Larkins(i think) butcher shop. This place hasn't sold a piece of meat in 20 yrs but yer man still opens the old fashioned shop every day and the city's older folk call in for a chat. It was in the paper at one stage, and a cutting of it is taped to the shop window. Interesting.

    Theres also that scruffy oul fella with the kinda rough goatee beard thats always sitting on a bench in the Lisduggan shopping centre

    Then there's Mr. Madigan in Madigans offie. Jez that place is some kip. You go in and he wipes the dust off the cans before you get them and wraps bottles in newspaper. And the amount of crap stuck to the wall in the back shop is unreal. It's like some kind of dirty sticker protest. Sometimes you see yer man with the checkered jacket, and wellies rolled down to his ankles and he would be mullocking away with crates of beer in the yard around the corner near tesco. He has a really squeeky vioice.

    I'm sure a lot of people would remember Frankie Byrne from the Villa football club. Dedicated his life to the club, a good man.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 517 ✭✭✭ batm!ke


    Speaking of Football Clubs, the guy who looks like Santa at all the Tramore AFC games is a total ledgebag (!) He's even got a Tramore AFC tattoo on his leg! Philly or somethin his name is. Plays Santa around town at Christmas, and I even saw him performing with a gospel choir in Red Square the week before the Tall Ships! Supposedly a really nice guy, my da knows him fairly well.

    There was a man in the early 80s who used to hang around Burgerland. He had a wild, red, straggly comb-over and was known as Fuckthepig/Screwthepig because legend has it that he had. I always wanted to feel sorry for him but he was an aggressive so and so.

    That'd be Kev Power. Pretty sure he was in Australia for a while and kept the fro the whole time. Must have been roasting. Good musician is Kev. Still meet him the odd time around town.
