He’s the original of the species, having been born down at the harbour back in 1932, and, bejiggers, no feckin’ virus is going to stop Joe Sweeney serving up his award-winning chips.
Which is why his famous waterfront takeaway & café is gearing up to open its doors once more.
The big plastic cough-guard thingies have already been installed, and every single centimetre of every single surface has been scrubbed to the bone.
Because once Joe Sweeney lifts up that shutter, there’ll be queues. And broad smiles.
And earth-rumbling burps.
And to mark the big occasion, the ever-generous Joe is offering anyone over 80 free chips, all day, every day, and forevermore.
We should have the date of that big reopening later this week, but, for now, let the OAPs of Greystones rejoice in this glorious gift.
The only stipulation, says Joe, is that any over-80s swinging down for their free chips must be accompanied by both parents.
