Holla,

Hookey Butler, and his lorries, the shortest job I ever had...I think the movie "The Hell Drivers", Stanley Baker, Sean Connery, Patrick McGoohan starred...was inspired by his deadly trucks..I ran screaming from the place back to Archers in Dublin...My cousins. the Latchfords lived in Lanesville untill early 1960s.
Other friends there the O'Gradys emigrated to Oz, Tommy Smith, Walter Pierce.etc
