Hardy Bucks: As sick as a plane to Lourdes

While I was summering in high latitudes, the whole country was apparently up in arms over Hardy Bucks, a groundbreaking documentary series, set in the western Irish city of Castletown. I was barely off the plane before the sister was on to me about the “Hardy Bucks”. I thought it was some form of extreme bookbinding. But no.
There was a time when RTE would miss out on beautiful opportunities like this one, but they seem to have some good heads above in Montrose at the moment. In a rare of example of not missing out on a beautiful opportunity , RTE named Hardy Bucks the winner of the Storyland competition. I strongly suggest you watch all nine episodes… and wet yourself laughing.

Writer, photographer, environmental campaigner and “known troublemaker” Dave Walsh is the founder of Blather.net, described both as “possibly the most arrogant and depraved website to be found either side of the majestic Shannon River”, and “the nicest website circulating in Ireland”. Half Irishman, half-bicycle. He lives in southern Irish city of Barcelona.
