Fay ‘Flying Fay’ Taylour

No ‘he-man’ she.

From Birr, Co Offaly. Educated at Alexandra College, Dublin, where she learned to drive a car at the age of 12 before  “graduating” to motorcycles.  She subsequently became fascist (as nice gels in the 1930s tended to do) and was interned in Britain. Probably why she doesn’t merit a mention on the Alex website.
She said she would get married when she met a man who was more of a challenge than a motorbike.
It did not happen.

    The dad of one of my Aussie mates used to race speedway. As soon as I began to ask him if he knew Fay, he said her surname and talked about her. So, she got around.
