The late Vince O'Brien, a racing personality from Walkerston. Vince was the fella came into the pub one day and looked really worried and wanted advice from Publican, Darcy O'Shea. He was on heart tablets. This particular morning he had taken the pill... to his amazement, he realised he had taken the dog's heart worm tablet. O'Shea, very helpful, in many ways, came from behind the bar and started leading him outside. Vince asked what was he planning. Darcy replied: I am going to tie you to the post with this rope and wait to see what happens. We will be all safe with you out here.
Bob Bishop... The ground rigger. He got that name, jokingly because they reckon he never got any higher than 18 inches off the ground. Worked for many years with Construction companies, as indeed I did, particularly REB Engineering. Doing construction work and shutdowns on the Bowen Basin Coal mines, west of here at Mackay.
