Overview

Growing up in rural County Waterford in the 1950/60's, a time of great rural upheaval and change. The creamery, the horse-and-cart, cross-road dancing, the threshing machine - all their days were numbered. Going to school across the Mass path, thinning turnips for a shilling a drill,watching Audie Murphy and Randolph Scott in films forever breaking down halfway through a reel,being an Altar Boy and 'fiddling' the Church collection box, learning to dance with a broomstick partner...memories of an age long gone.
Who flattened Fr. Sinnott in the Sacristy? What was the initiation ceremony at Flahavans Mills? Who was the trombone player in the band that couldn't play a note? The Shiny Red Honda is also about dreams and aspirations; a young man's entry into the world of work, and his brief flirtation with the music business. A story told as it was - warts and all.
