That photo of Ballybrack brings back many memories in the early 1960s I was the proud owner of a blue & cream heinkel scooter which I used going to dances everywhere ,not for me at the time was anything like a windshield or crash helmet or leathers just a pair of gloves and a scarf. one night I was in laurel park in Bray at the Royal Showband and after the dance one of my mates matt kavanagh from Glasthule asked for a lift home now those of you can remember when we went to dances then it was not blue jeans and jumpers but Tailorfit suits paid for by the week where you went in to Willie Mitchael next door to Hicks on Lower Georges Street with your seven shillings on saturdays , so myself and Matt looked like the teddy boys we were not ,14 inch drainpipe trousers and all ,I am sure I had an overcoat with me but Matt was in a hurry to get home (he had a lift but he did'nt want to wait ) so he hopped up on the back.
That was until we got to Ballybrack Village when the heavens opened and enough water to sink the Titanic came down on us ,me with no hat or helmet tried to shield myself under my coat as much as possible, when we got to the entrance to Watsons Nurseries just before the Graduate when Matt let out a roar MIND THE COW THERE WAS A COW WALKING ALONG THE ROAD in the rain I could not see but we swerved to avoid the cow and when we got to Glasthule we stepped off the scooter and it was like we were carrying a basin of water on our laps both our suits were ruined .
but we had a good laugh in the Parocial Hall on the following Sunday night when Matt said he would never get on the scooter with me again he would walk home first.

Fair play to you Strum, at last, someone to stand up against this scumbag, I really hope it does the trick, but, be careful, this little creep sounds a nasty bit of stuff, be on your guard.

Keeper's right Strum,be very careful. People who commit these crimes dont have the same mindset as normal people. I would take advice from the Gardai who have far greater experience in dealing with these matters.

Thanks for the good wishes guys. He has been in and out of the Courts for years but this is the first time hes is in Custody and in the Joy for Christmas I believe.
He will be sentenced in January for a string of crimes including breaking his probation. Detective reckons he will get a year.
You wonder though will a stretch do him any good or make him worse?

A year sentence is a joke for that scumbag, he will be out in 9 months, just enough time for him to make new contacts inside, that's unbelievable, the attack on your boy warrants more than a year on it's own, not to mention the obvious string of other offences, it's the victims who suffer the most always.

Thats assuming he even gets sentenced to be honest, this time of the year is often very busy in the holding cells and our man could easily be out before xmas with a court date that he probably won't attend.

You are correct Toss, sadly that's the case, these scumbags know full well how the system works and use it, between the legal system and the HSE I 've come to realise that Geldof was right all along, we live in a Banana Republic.

just learned today that this scum robbed four other people ON the DART the same night and two more people in Stations. Eight people same night. :shock: :o
Like I said he is on remand in the Joy for the first time in his life because he is now 18.
He broke his previous bail terms and also a barring/restriction order from the Court NOT to go near ANY DART Stations because this is what he has done many times before.
Somehow I think this character is gone WAYYYY beyond rehabilitation at this stage.

Keep an Eye out for him in the future, and keep an eye out always anyway. He is only one and this method may be a new way of mugging people related to the DART.
Unmanned Stations in isolated areas. Stay safe and keep yer wits about.

Well done to Dún Laoghaire Co Co. They have erected the most gorgeous Christmas Tree in Ballybrack.

I have been watching the workers for the last few days and was wondering just what was going on. First they affixed a cage like structure around the monument opposite the igoe inn. Then last night lads were working within the cage and lo and behold this afternoon they had the white lights affixed and some blue star like objects. it is gorgeous. i only hope the lads and lasses respect it and do not do anything to it.

Great job! I passed it earlier in a car but no camera, and stopped at the lights. Moment missed. No doubt one of you will post it. :D
