Thread Name: Who was Paddy Doyle?
Subject: RE: Who was Paddy Doyle?
It is my belief that Paddy Doyle was a boarding master or 'crimp' who would sell his own son for a shilling.
That reference made by Fred Buryeson was probably made with his tongue firmly in his cheek.
A bit like saying that Larry Marr made the best lemonade this side of Shanghai :-)
