I seem to recall Paddy Kirwan going by the moniker of 'BigSac'.

And of course all Birr hullers will answer to 'Mush' :)

Rhode is ridiculous for nicknames, probably more so than anywhere else I'd say. My favourite (non footballer) is "The Plague" Doolin. Also, in Rochfortbridge apparantly theres a fella that does a bit of painting to earn a crust and of course is known as "The Dauber". Gotta love it !.

There was a school teacher in Portlaoise with the nickname 'Chip'. When his son started in the school, he was given the name 'Marmalade', cos he was Little Chip.
