That was a particularly long night in The Balmoral, especially when Joe 'Sailor' Curran and Barney'The Colonel' Devlin began celebrating you didn't know when it was going to end, or where it was going to end. But that was a great night, and to make matters worse or better (I am still not sure which,) about 11o'clock Jim McCart stood up and announced there was a free bar for all and sundry, it was the signal for the stampede to start. The Balmoral staff were literally run off their feet on that occasion, they all went home about 6 inches shorter.
The late 'Sailor' Curran and the late 'Colonel' Devlin were great company to be with, and with the drink flowing, it really was a terrific night's craic. I remember Raymie Boyle and his good wife pleading with us to please go home, well it was about 5 o'clock in the morning.
'Sailor' and 'The Colonel' are sadly missed.
