These were taken about 2 minutes apart, from slightly different angles. But hopefully it absolutely threw it down on them.

Hopefully not sr, hopefully not :)

Pikey is another word for gypsy, or traveller. Generally though real gypsys don't cause trouble, and travellers actually travel. What we have are Irish squatters who steal land, harass people, and generally disregard the rules and laws of society, then bleat on about their civil libertys.

As individuals I have met/spoken/happened across a few of them and they are fine, I just don't agree with a lot of their behaviour.

You'd not be wrong there at all ;)

I'm surprised you've never heard of it though, it was one that people used to use way back in the early 80's down this way.
