ah thanks GG. the furthest spot you can see on that photo is where my sister lives lol

17 Aug, 2009

 

Could you tell us what this represents please Irish ?

17 Aug, 2009

 

its a momunent to St. Oliver Plunkett, he was born near where this is.
he was hung drawn and quartered in 1681

17 Aug, 2009

 

Oh dear,what a fate, but good that people liked him enough to remember him in this way.

17 Aug, 2009

 

aye bit like William Wallace

17 Aug, 2009

 

Glad to hear he didn't go to waste. Was it only quarters or did the butcher cut smaller portions for those who didn't have enough money for a whole one?

17 Aug, 2009

 

well his head is in a church in Drogheda Toto lol

17 Aug, 2009

Amy a Piece is a sandwich in Scotland - Piece and cheese, Piece and Ham or my Scottish fav Piece and Jam. It get a bit tricky though - a slice of toast and butter would be a piece and toast.

18 Aug, 2009

 

I'm a Brummie and we always used to ask Mom for 'piece' I always thought everybody said that LOL. We then got asked a piece of what, jam, dripping, condensed milk, oh yummy condensed milk sandwiches. Toto, did you put salt on your dripping sandwiches as well as the jelly, we did!! Could you imagine kids today if we asked them if they would like a jelly dripping sandwich with salt on ROFL - anyway, hung, drawn and quartered he was, but at least he got a memorial stone for his trouble!!!

21 Aug, 2009
