“I’m 83 at the moment, and still working. I worked my whole life cleaning sewerage and drains. I spent 44 years working for Dublin City Council cleaning the sewers right under us. There’s actually a whole system down there, just like up here. Some parts could be 8 feet high and 20 feet wide. There were times it was easier to find your way around down there… But on the streets I use this bike, which is about 90 years old now. I got it from my father in law, and I still use it every day.”

Edit: He was married for 62 years. Sadly lost his wife last year, but as he said they loved each other all the way throughout.
