In The Land Of Forty Foot Men


Ancient Mysteries explained.

Dun Laoghaire, county Dublin.

Actually 37 feet…

‘ …but they rounded it up to 40 because that was the age of struggling fathers trying to bond with their sons while having an identity crisis at the same time’.

      my oul fella who drove trucks in and out of Alexandra Basin for 40 years from the mid-60’s to 00’s taught me about the various places around Dublin and indeed beyond the pale (some sadly gone now) to go to if you needed either a)something done right b)something done in an emergency c)something you normally couldn’t get too easily….a spoken word database held together by a grapevine of these professional drivers, all working for different and sometimes competing crowds which was an A-Z of everything you needed to know from where to get your automatic gearbox repaired to the lad in Monaghan that did Sony Trinitron tv’s and train sets not available here to the best feed on the southside at 4am. pre internet and mobile phones naturellment.

      anyway The Lucky Alex in Dun Laoghaire as he called it was one of those places and he was very glad that yer man moved across the road and kept things going

      24/7 before 24/7 was invented.
