Laurel and Hardy

saw these guys when we were in Sligo.  My grandmother used to watch Laurel and Hardy on television back in the day.  I can remember her laughing while watching their show.  A happy memory.

  19. Very unusual. I wonder why the owner chose to station Laurel and Hardy there.

    1. I don't believe they were Irish but they could have Irish ancestors. Stan was an Englishman born in Cumbria, England and Oliver was born in Georgia.
