Bang Bang

My father told me about this long-coated man called Bang Bang, he would mosey around Dublin city with a Cathedral door key in his pocket and draw it like a gun slinger on unsuspecting passers by shouting “Bang Bang”

The other legend is that the family he came from lived on to become the Morrisseys who owned the butchers on Wexford street, opposite where I work in Solas, and that they had the key on a plaque in the office of the shop, no more as the place has been sold and is being gutted, an Irish tri-colour over the window in honour of it’s passing.
