Subject: RE: Lord Lucan search ends with folk singer!
various stories of Barry Halpin include at the 1973 Listowel Fleadh he was walking along the street and he kicked a man up the bum because someone told him he was French. When the man asked "what was that for?" Barry said "because you're French", the man said "No I am Breton", so Barry said "Sorry Cock".

Another time, going to Ireland in a van with the Liverpool Ceili Band, a bunch of lads were sleeping in the back of the van, Barry woke up and puked on Mick Coyne and fell asleep again. Might have been the same evening, he pissed into a mug, in the morning he just pored the piss away and made a cup of tea in it.

Fond of mountain climbing, Barry came across some posers up a mountain with all the latest gear. When they weren't looking, Barry got a camera out of one of their rucksacks and filled the roll with pictures of his bum and put the camera back where he found it and didn't say anything.

I could go on...
