    Anyone interested in Old Limerick

    Great site, I actually meant to add it as a link when the new munsterfans went live.
    It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

    Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

    no
    Seven social sins: politics without principles, wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, and worship without sacrifice

      It wasn't a question, it was a statement alerting anyone interested in Old Limerick to read the thread, for shame, Scots.


      Seriously though, it's an excellant site and seems to be updated regularly.

        Talking of Sir Harry's Mall - years agoI had a friend who lived there, he wentby the name of Hanrahan.


        Would anyone on MF know of him by any chance? If so, a PM would be appreciated - I'd love to get in touch with himagain.

          I like the one about a certain John Hayes 3 times whipped for stealing.

            Seven years for stealing a shirt. Makes you think about the sentences handed out nowadays.

              This is hilarious- an account of the Todds fire in 1959.

              <TD vAlign=top align=left width="100%" colSpan=2>{Noel Hanley recalls his time with the Irish Red Cross during the 1950s}

              "It was during that time frame that Todds went up in flames, and we parked the Red Cross Ambulance at the corner of Bedford Row and O'Connell St. Our first priority was to evacuate the patrons from Sullivans Bar in Thomas St as smoke started to enter from the restrooms area. During this trek we also liberated some Hennessy's Cognac which was taken to the Ambulance, Mullany's Restaurant donated a large Churn of fresh tea, and this is when we went slightly wrong. We added the contents of our bottles to the churn, and it tasted pretty good! Now the bad news, I went to relieve the Fireman with the hose trying to dowse the flames above the jewelry shop next to Todds. As the firemen got replenished, we were slightly inebriated and suddenly the entire front of Todds facade crashed to the ground. We could hear a gasp from the onlookers that gathered, but when the smoke and dust settled we were both still erect aiming the hose at where we thought the window was previously. Lacking pressure in the hose, (The tide was out) we were unable to break the windows of the Hairdressers above Burtons Tailoring on the corner of William St. This is when we reverted to throwing stones to try and break the glass. Unfortunately, we could not hit the side of the building as the bricks we threw were landing and causing havoc in William St. Somewhere around this time, we lost one Fire tender, and resumed trying to prevent the telephone wires leading into William St Garda Station from melting completely. To those unfortunates who chained their bikes to the railings outside the station, the tires had melted to the footpath. Faced with a lack of hoses, no pressure, the fire raged on. I resorted to throwing a steel bucket filled with water through the Plate glass window of Burtons store front on William St. This enabled the fire to take control and burn the entire block from William St to Thomas St to ground level and below. The only remaining feature was a large safe on what was the second floor. Day's following they uses a helicopter to assist in demolishing what we failed to achieve. And a good time was had by all"<!- ParagraphEnd ->
