The coal money or did it become oil money was payable at 1 in St Pats.The Brother would read
the list out once a week naming and shaming.I
used to pester my mother for the pound and when
I had the greenback I kept my hand in my pocket
for fear of losing it.
I can still remember one lad who couldnt get the
pound and the anguish on his face when the list
was read.
Amazing what you forget.The individual involved
hasnt been back to town in my memory.
