Sean and I did a lemonade round when we were kids.One night he fell off the back of the van.We thought he had broken both of his wrists.When we got to his house Barney took one look and said,:They are,ONLY,staved.Hold on a minute."He filled the sink with cold water and told Sean to put his hand in.He reached down and gave his arm and hand a helluva yank.The screaming was awful and before you could blink he had done the other one.As it turned out he was right and next day he was back on the street-Good as Gold.I'll never forget that til the day I die.
I was and still am glad that it wasn't me.

They did move from 61 Anderson Street in the 70's....there's Sean, Eddie, Gerrard, Liam, Kevin, Brian, Jim, Maureen....and Paddy,  my husband  lives in Canada now.  Never had the pleasure of meeting Barney....but from the stories I've been told he was quite a character.
