the bhoys of the ould brigade

(celebrating the spirit of 1916 with the Heelers Diaries)

The neighbour's kid was in.
"Everyone at school has relatives who were involved in the 1916 Rising," says she.
"I doubt it," sez me.
"What do you mean?" says she.
"Listen kid," sez me, "if everyone who says they had relatives fighting in 1916, really did have relatives who were fighting in 1916, Padraig Pearse would have had a standing army of three million, not 300."
