    A friend's CO, family doctor and next door neighbour were all the same person. Her brother would get uniform inspection before leaving the family kitchen. :(

    I was conscripted. My uncle the late Lt Cdr John Doyle had no sons ! and being the first born male child of age I was put on the recruitment list at a very age .My interview and medical were a very informal affair. I was told I was going to visit a paradise island for a weekend and ended up in haulbowline on a dark tuesday night...When I woke up i was in the Navy.
    I wasn't so much afraid of the training staff as what would happen to me if found out if I ****ed off.
    I used to have to report to his house in Cobh( Roches Terrace ) every Sunday for a debrief on my weeks training.

    So after a 16 week nightmare I pass out....he turns up at my passing out parade and bollocks the Duty officer about an over flowing drain.....Murphys career is definetely not on the rise.

    On joining the Eithne the CO finds out who I am...it turns out that my relative had passed a comment noting that the Co would n't make a good leading seaman....while he had been a cadet......Murphy is really ****ed now ...and the rest is history...and that explains how I ended up in Cork

    I forgot the Kilkenny contingent made up of Kieran Cullinane and Ted The Red Bradley who hailed from castlecomer....Dubs were very much in the minority.

    Full of jackeens...thats a very assumptive statement given in my day we had a very mixed crew four from waterford several from the midlands......one from mayo.......two from Drogheda.......a handful of jackeens and a few mavericks....the rest were corkistanis who ****ed off home to their mammies at every oppertunity....at one stage we even had a couple of brits on board.two from kildare....including the late great Minnie carroll.he was the leading Tel and on my first night on QM he brought me up the biggest fry up you have ever seen C/w chips ...no wonder he died of a heart condition.
