This man has been selling the Evening Echo on Cork’s Patrick’s Street for years. Here’s a photo of him back in August 2005!

  1. the photo is very good but the most famous echo boy was my late father inlaw mikey o mahony who sold the echo for over 70 years .His stance was at the top of shandon st oppoosite the north chapel.Even to this day one of his sons also called mikey still sells papers at that stance .I myself live in scotland and have happy memories of selling the echo at shandon street.

  2. I am Mikey’s son and I have very plesent memories of working for Dad. I have worked in the Shandon street area and North Gate Bridge. For 20 years.
