Teatime Talk: ‘‘Bang Bang Shoots The Buses: Thomas Dudley and his Legacy"

When: Wednesday 24th March at 7pm

Where: Online via Zoom

Many Dubliners have fond memories of Thomas Dudley, known affectionately as 'Bang Bang'.

Born in the Rotunda and resident of the Coombe, Bang Bang was well known for travelling on the buses of Dublin in the mid 20th century and holding pretend shoot-outs with the people of the city with a large church key as his 'gun'.

He is fondly remembered by many people who lived in the tenements for the fun and joy he brought to the streets of the city. In this free online Teatime Talk, historian Donal Fallon talks to Bang Bang Café co-owner Daniel Lambert about this much-loved man and his legacy in Dublin today.
