My memory of Paul Street back in the day are of a run-down area of town. Heads Only was where I used to get my hair cut back in the day (late 70s/early 80s) and there were a couple of trinket shops and a Donegal mens outfitters there but the two "laneways" (French Church Street and Carey's Lane) were dark and smelled of pee, with the occasional jobbie there too from winos or people who were caught short on Pana.
Can still recall the "Ha priest, where's your God now" in yellow graffiti on the back of St Peter and Pauls.

Ah the memories

There was was a bookshop in the corner run by a poor man who was tormented by the likes me to putting people off going into that corner with my Captain Insano tshirt

I once bought hair dye in Moonshine in the shopping centre and then had to get my hair bleached to get the shit out of it

I recall Joe the nice security man in Tesco who put up with a lot but always had the measure of the Paul rats

And how could I forget the Blast gigs in the Half Moon. Naggins, metal and punk bands, all day long on a Sundays afternoon. And sher you'd always get a shift and a finger too.

You don't appreciate your youth til it's gone, do you? Jayzus I'd love a Sunday afternoon in the Half Moon watching Dog on Stilts and worrying about my homework.
Remember red square
