I had an Uncle named Tony who was the head waiter in Wynns hotel on Abbey street on the northside of Dublin city, he was the head man in there through tough times and was let go to much distress, 30 years after he started. I had ice cream there when i made my confirmation, i remember my Planet of the Apes action figures in their plastic boxes from Cleary’s toy department, the smile on my dad’s face in a blue suit and i think we had a closed restaurant to ourselves in the afternoon, sheer important bliss.
He worked very hard according to my cousin Paula, who worked with him during her summer holidays and Paul Hand a friend i do photos for sometimes in the Drury Court hotel said he was a hard task master who still stood by the silver service ways of dining, a consumate professional.
