  3. The Meanace ... that's Denis.
  4. Cool Pat & no intro required.
Having gone to school with some of these guys was great, as school life was never dull.. alway's a good laugh & alway's something happening. Today not much has changed I still meet up with the odd hellraiser from "yester year" from time to time & share in all the recent happenings.... so if you know any of the crew pictured in this, take note they are all live wires & all would have some stories to tell.... the trend setters of their time, Beer drinking, Bike riding, Head banging rockers.. who were all pretty cool.. Denis Gorman & Leo would have been a major influence on the music tastes of many in Donegal of that time. So next time you sit in the chair havin' your ears lowered by himself, think to yourself Head banger!!
