Liverpool is full of Irish Catholics. The name is a give away.
One of our closest friends was John Joseph – a true Scouser – that we called Scouse. Next time we met him, 5 years later, he was known as JJ and became my boss when I worked at a secret location in Hampshire.
Mate at home. At work he regularly told me to eff off because I worked too quickly and kept asking him for more. TRUE FACT!
P.S. Barry is JOE McGann. Calm Down Calm Down…he’s only been to dat der London!
