Do ye remember when the evening echo gave away free t shirts of packie Bonner saving the pen in 1990? There were thousands outside the evening echo factory on the morning they were giving them away. It was like Woodstock. Caught the echo guys off guard. Went home empty handed myself on the day but got given a ticket to come back a few days later to pick up my prize. Simple times.

Lol.

The echo should have really planned this better but all fixed in a few days.

If it happened these says you would have meltdowns and counselling for the victims.

Did Manchester City play a friendly against Cork United at Turners Cross back in the late 70s?

Eddie Kidd at the Páirc.

Inspired countless hours of wheelies, ramp jumping and stunt riding on my chopper.

There was a stunt cars event down PUC as well, "Hell Drivers" was the name of the troupe.
