Aye  Arder,  hope  you  corner  him -------   :D
i will barry, we have loads to talk about, in the early days i organised exhibitions for guiness around the sydney pubs, that was before they sold giunness on tap.
did various things with him, the last one was when i sponsored the 1979 snooker title between him and eddie charlton at rooty hill rsl, i even had the three day event covered by television, paddy lost in the last frame on the brown ball, broke my heart.

Paddy had four brothers, if my memory serves me correctly. .Eddie,Con, Manual, and Sean. I believe Con and Manual have died. RIP.  Again from memory, I believe he had a sister named Bell who died in Australia. RIP

Hello Jinx,
I was not aware that Manual had passed away he would have been more my age, i think he worked on boats for years, sorry to heat that.

Remember Paddy coming into my grannies house in McCleery st as my brother Michael knocked about with him and my cousin Pat Flynn That snooker cue was always with him and watched him play in the Tin hut in North Queen st and couldnt believe how good he was I remember his two brothers and one was a seaman called Manual and the other who i forget his name was a dummy but getting back to Paddy he seems to forgotten in the snooker world in Ireland and a great player

My cousin was married to Tommy Phillips R.I.P.
He lived off N.Queen St. I believe he played for
St Patricks Parochial Club. :)

My Da always talked about Paddy My Da was Bobby Gillespie
I remember your Da very well. I was on a Belfast Hibs billiards team with him  that won the all Ireland Hibs cup in Derry in 1956.  The other team members were Sean McEvoy, also from Ardoyne and Gabriel Brown. I was only a kid and came from Clonard Hibs.
