Old Story:
Back 50 years ago, most men wore a hat or a cap, if any 2 men got into an argument on the street or in the Pub, one of the men would leave his hat or cap on the ground, that would be an offer to the other man to fight. He would then ask him to kick it, and if he kicked it then the boxing would start.

15 mms of rain fell in the Moyvane area last week.
