Danny Grealy lived here in Clonkeel, close to the River Shannon in the shadow of Slieve Bawn, which is across the river on the Roscommon side. Danny was great company. He had an infectious laugh that got lots of practice. I loved the way he put on his hat – he used both hands and sort of screwed it onto his head.

His hat was also a great indicator of how much fun he was having – the more fun, the further back on his head went the hat.
