I Remember Dublin City .. In The Quare Oul Times. by 


Take yer self a dander ,down the side o’ the Liffey , near the Quays. Stroll o’er the Hae’penny Bridge.. an’ were are ye? Well i’ll tell ye! Yer in the Temple Bar! Where all the wouldbe bards an’ poets and artists an’ policitians an’ rebels an’ plotters an’ movers an’ shakers an’ every common five eight of a muck shoveller till a lord rubbed shoulders. but none can compare to the man .. the brother…..Myles na gCopaleen.. aka.. Flann O’Brien.. aka Brian O’Nolan.. .sure didn’t he have them all measured!!

..When moneys tight and hard to get
And your horse is an also ran
..when all you have is a heap of debt
A pint of plain is your only man.

..In time of trouble and lousy strife
You have still got a darlint plan
..You can still turn to a brighter life
A pint of plain is your only man

At Swim, Two BirdsFlan O’Brien 1939
