On Christmas Day, my 6 year old (and I KNOW there’s nothing more boring than other people’s kids) stood up in the in-laws house and told joke after joke for 10 minutes solid.

It’s time to hand over the torch to the next generation I reckon :)

Rubbish. He lived in HOWTH!
Philip first attended school in Moss Side, Manchester. In 1957, aged eight, he went to live with his grandparents, Frank and Sarah Lynott, in Crumlin, Dublin.
No, he lived in Howth. With Gaybo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5UJO4pn0ZY

Looks like Howth.
