The first time I saw Irish Ivor Barret (Pat Barret), he brought a shillelagh into the ring I don't know if this was for luck but a shamrock would have been too small to be seen.

Kevin Conneely had a shillelagh, and of course, Catweazle had his lucky toad. And not forgetting British Bushwhacker(Frank Casey) and his plastic chicken!

Klondyke Bill had a horse shoe round his neck.


British wrestling - great characters but the plot was always a bit of a mystery.

Yes Hack Klondyke's horse shoe was a large one belonging to a heavy horse like a clydesdale, with a huge chain holding it around his neck. Then when the referee instructed him to take it off, he would make such an issue about it, and that would wind the audience up straight away. Klondyke could certainly sock it to em.!!! 😈 regards Les.
