Sorry to hear about Henry, Murrisk. My Dad and he were good friends. He was great craic,and entertained everyone who stopped by the shop.Alas people like him who give of their good spirits sometimes masked seriousness in their private lives. The Downes family of Blackfort had to deal with illness within the family, but Henry would'nt let you know it!. Someone was asking about he Pantomimes of those times. Henry used to appear as a female impersonator and would bring the house down. I was in his shop one day when HIS Dad was was still around. He was checking out a car up on the hydrolic that someone had bought the day before,and Henry comes out from underneath ,rubing his hands on the the ever present oil cloth and remarks to the ever present audience; 'I wish he had me do this Before he bought the car", " The Chasis is cracked!".
