hellllo Dennis!

I seem to remember you mentioning the late Kevin Massey in an old post, probably Eblana?

I'm wondering do you or any other members remember a tragedy that befell his eldest brother ' Andrew '?

I recall 'though vaguely, that the poor fella' was attacked and mauled by a lion. He survived fortunately but was badly scarred.

Kevin when a schoolboy was featured frequently in newspapers as he was an irish dancing champion who it is said laterly tutored Michael Flatley

But my strongest memory of the family is of a huge RTE OB van parked outside their house on Oliver Plunkett Rd.,and the unfortunate Andy

going into it to be interviewed.The details of the incident are sparse to say the the least, does anyone remember any more ?

Slipper,

You can hear his brother, Brian, telling the story on Liveline here: http://www.rte.ie/radio1/liveline/progr ... id=1241266

Thanks for that Skins,

It was great to hear to hear the full story and indeed to hear Brian (an old friend) tell it.

I grew and palled with him for years but for some reason or other I can't remember the incident ever being discussed .

That was some story. Never heard about it before.

It's hard to believe that something so tragic was so little known. I just can't remember it ever been spoken about when I was young, but then that's not today or yesterday. dontknow
