Biker Bill O’Brien is just one of several people who’s stories we collected for britainandireland.org on the way between Ireland and Holyhead one day last month. Others included the Yorksman on his way to pick up his brother’s trainset; the Merseyside couple who went to see a Wexford man about a dog; as well as picking up some artefacts of Welsh and Irish history on the way. The next issue should launch in time for St Patrick’s Day on Friday.
