Waterford has had a tradition of meat processing, and we have seen the various versions of that over the years. Here is another example with Mr. M. O’Regan’s premises on Georges Street. A fine selection of bodies lined up, and that is just the butchers themselves! Once I saw the shot with the messenger bike on display, I thought of the late Christy Hennessy, the singer/songwriter who hailed from Waterford and his song “Messenger Boy”! He would identify!
