The Circus
An annual attraction was the visit of the circus. Duffy's circus was the firsr one I remember and later Fossetts' circus replaced it. One memory is of Paddy McMahon from the Greenore Rd. riding the bucking bronco ( a mule or a jinnet )and ,to grear cheers holding on to the end without being thrown off once. The 'strong man' in Duffys' or possibly, Fossetts' was a man named Moriarty. While the visit of the circus was an annual event 'Pitch and Toss@ was a regular pastime and on Sunday mornings and on other suitale occasions was played with quite a degree of intensity just off the lane running down from the Tholsel.
