That's right,Liz..Donleavy said he was the only man in Ireland with a beard..and he used to deliberately have it...It provoked lots of fights and he was known as being a tough and strong street-fighter...

wasn't that something to do with mistrusting people with beards. I know you were not allowed them in the Policeforce for many years but I am not sure if that was the reason.
I find it hard to believe he was the only man in Ireland with a beard though :lol:

Yes, they are.I had a leprechaun it was a little plastic fellow, I used to turn it round to face the other way, I was scared of it, I always felt it was an evil little thing and was watching me, had a really mean face :lol:
