Me and Al were too young to get in in them days - we used to swall in the Peter Pan - Sexy Sam was the best DJ on the Road  O0
Does my face look bothered?

Grainne is as gorgeous as ever   

I've been asking Al about Red Boots and he tells me hardly anything.  I'm gonna ask Arkie instead, he'll give me all the dirty.  I asked him once about it and he was about to tell me all the biz, but Mrs Arkie wasn't too amused so he had to stop telling me the story  ;)

Burnsy, did you ever go to the clubhouse? Great bands like Baraka and Shanghai Lil, but the place was boggin. The travellers frequented the public bar and they sold them the absolute dregs. By default, they sold them to us as well. The things that were floating in that beer. The toilets were the worst. A barman used to come in with a stick and lift the empties out of the urinal - presumably to wash them for re-use. So naturally we got into the habit of smashing them when we found them. The worst thing I ever saw though was a guy walking out of a cubicle with his trousers around his ankles to wipe his behind on the handtowel - there was never any toilet roll.

Good grief, never thought I would read so many nice notes about the Briar and the Clubhouse...fights all the time, during the feuds dangerous, people getting beat up on the lane

Gypsies playing pool in the clubhouse in about 2 inches of water or beer wasn't sure what it was

The gypsies used to fight us every Friday night on that lane on the way up to the Briar.

I think everybody at some time or another, got their ballicks knocked in up there!

The Green Briar was built in the early 70's originally for target golf, 50 pence for a bucket of balls, the club house was used on a Sunday night and The Wolfhound played the the best folk band ever, then about 1974 the built the big dance hall everyone knows, Tony Morrilli and the Witnesses, Mark Mitchell and the Professionals, Shay Young to name but a few, Many a great night the was listening to them, I lived in Lenadoon so it was a very handy place to me, I don't think there has ever been a place so successful as the Green Briar.

On our way up to the Briar the gyps used to say give us a pound or I'll dirty your clothes
