I also understand that the Greenock Travel Club held the record for the largest supported club bus membership in the UK blowing the huns out the water, but I've worked in Glasgow for years and they get the impression that Paisley is a hun toon.
Believe me its the opposite, we've had the 2 Davy Hay buses, a bus from St.Peters club in Glenburn, one from the In Shot pub in the west end, one from the Wellington Bar, and a crowd of hoops from Gabriels Bar who make their own way to matches.
As for the huns, they have a bus from the Croft and Webster's dumps in the town and that's it, so Paisley's green n white ha ha

PS oops also forgot the buses that leave from the Wig and Pen, sorry bhoys
FFS how could you forget the Wiggy, remember Arthur got fined for his sign out on the pavement DOBS vCeltic Lol :worthy:

I go into Sharkeys in the Gorbals for a pint after work sometimes.

Anyone know if there was a bus from there ? I know way back there was one from the Clelland Bar round the corner but now long gone.
No bus from Sharkeys even when it was the Stage door most guys walk up to Brazen or
go up on the Evergreen bus.
Isa had opportunity to have bus twice.Evergreen needed a base and at one time Brazen lost its license. On both occassions she did not want the bus or its members/supporters. The later were too noisy and boisterous amd swore too much... the former were too much from Gweedore :clap:

Gave me a lift once in his Merc.
Always seemed friendly enough then again i wasn,t asking him for anything other than a clean glass.
Although the film "Ryan's Daughter" did spring to mind every time i met him.
Believe he had another pub in Monaghan.
He was originally fron Monaghan I believe.
Heard a few good stories about Derry tonight.

When he arrived from Monaghan, he lodged with my Grandparents in Thistle St before he sorted his digs.

He was a good boxer, and as noted after his Nationality change, he was outcast by a fair few.

As good a boxer as he was, he was apparently a bit cocky with it, (no surpises there) and one day when sparring with Peter Walsh, he hit Peter below the belt. Walsh set about him for this.

This led to a flare up, and George McDade offered a fight to Traynor and in Jack Burns boxing club Derry gave his minder a wedge for a side bet. McDade was giving Derry a doing when Derry backed off and stated they go upstairs as his bet was just for fun (or something along those lines)

It was a this point Peter Keenan grabbed Derry and told him to pick a window, as he was going through one.

It resulted in Sammy Doherty (Derry's manger) asking Jack Burns to 'go easy' on him and promised no longer would Derry act the goat.
From that day on Derry was as good as gold around his peers.

Another story told was that Charlie Gallagher ran a pub in the Gorbals, and he was a large softly spoken Irish man.
One night Traynor arrived at his (Gallaghers) pub, and accused him of stealing his punters.

Gallagher informed Traynor that most of his clientel had been drinking in his pub for almost 20 years, then to make his point grabbed Traynor by his tie, pulled him to the floor then pulled a large knife, drew it over Traynors throat and said, 'I do love that tie Derry, do you think if I cut your head from you neck I could get to keep it?' :lol:

Traynor left whiter than a ghost.

There where a few other stories, but I could hardly keep up with them all.

As far as the buses going to C.P.

Stokes (Glasgow Cross)? ran up to 6 on big games, Gallaghers and the Mearns had 2 each and Traynor one or two. :thumbsup:

Im sure there are many other stories I can round up, so any others I get I'll post!

Hey blue eyes.

thoroughly great read through this thread.

Do any of the Gorbals Bhoys remember the Crookit Bawbee on Kidston St?

My old man owned that pub in the early - mid 60's before opening a brand new pub on Shettleston Road.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone knew much about his first pub.

Interesting poster.
Sure enough, the tickets cost a dollar??? 25p.

Regarding the (Coatbridge) Shamrock Accordion Band, the band secretary from 1967 is still alive.
According to him he approach Paradise before Celtic had made it to the European Cup Final in Lisbon.
A meeting was set up at Celtic Park with Robert Kelly.
Yer man from the Shamrock Band made his case to Robert Kelly.
In the event of Celtic winning the cup with the big ears, the Shamrock would like the honour of leading the team around Celtic Park.
The band would play Hail Hail, the Celts are Here and nothing else.
Total cost, two cans of beer each and their bus fare home.
"well i've one more person to see regarding this" says Robert Kelly.

Outside his office was a rep from the City of Glasgow Police Pipe Band.
