Anyone know the names of any of the eh steamed Castlebar gentlemen who exited from Tansey over the high wall onto the mall in the early hours of a suumer morning back in tne late 60s?
This unusual exit was due to the presence of a squad car parked outside Heatons which showed no signs of moving. So Sammy and Jessy needing to retire and keep their reputations intact as well as endorsements off their licence suggested this Colditz type escape up onto the mall.
It turned out that this was all part of a friendly game by the guards who asked one of the escapees a few days later how they enjoyed the night in Tanseys. He went into convulsions when the escapade was related to him.
Here is clue and some have sadly passed on;
A nurse from the Newport Rd area
A tailor from the same vicinity
A rotund postman from Cabbagetown
His brother in law
A man from Mountain View
An ESB man from the Newport Rd.
An electrician from just off the Newport Rd.
Note. Another patron of Tanseys, a potigeir, who was absent on the night in question, but had he been present, would have been taking a short cut home to the Green.
