Bang Bang


The best known of all Dublin’s street characters, Bang Bang patrolled the streets of the capital in the 1950s acting out the role of a movie cowboy, shooting pedestrians with a giant brass key that served as his Colt 45. The passengers onboard the trams and buses enjoyed his play acting and often joined in, pretending to be shot. When he fired a shot he’d shout out “Bang Bang”, hence the name.
Poor auld Bang Bang, he’d probably be arrested nowadays you certainly couldn’t let him anywhere near the airport.
