30 years ago, a guy called Bully Larkin lived in Chapelizod. He was an ill conditioned guy with herculean strength.
He was known in the neighbourhood as the bully because of his physical superiority and his skill as a pugilist, which is a fighter.
On many occasions, he was forcing quarrels, upon men he knew he would win against. Larkin has never been fairly tried in a fight, they were always smaller than him, they were never in the same size.
There was a guy called long Ned, he was a nineteen-year-old kid, and was 12 years younger than the bully, he was looking at a big breasted lady, and the bully did not like that, and he felt like it was his rival.
