A few aspects of town you might have overlooked

entrance to golf course

I had chosen the above photo for inclusion before I read that Listowel Golf Course has closed. Someone who posts on Boards as Mike Hn posted the below photo recently of the site where the golf course used to be.

Bang Bang, a beloved Dublin character

Bang Bang was the nickname of a well known Dublin character in the sixties and seventies.  He was a grown up cowboy and Dublin was his Dodge City. He used to jump on the running board of buses and “shoot” passers by with his imaginary gun. The “gun” was, in fact, a big key and it is now preserved  in the National Museum. With so much gun crime on the streets of our capital nowadays the key is a reminder of a more innocent age.
