I never figured out how a land locked location was known as Tiger Bay  ???
Tiger's Bay got its name, like Tiger bay in Cardiff was a name sailors gave to a port where they found the men to be hard workers, hard drinkers and hard men.

The late Belfast author Sam McAghtry wrote several humorous books  about his youth there.


You are right, Welder. Some really touching, humorous and very human stories of childhood and characters. I lost a booklet of his stories that I kept for years; must try to find it again.
