At a time when priests patrolled the narrow country lanes at night, searching with sticks and even with dogs, for courting couples, Dan Paddy Andy came in for ringing denunciations from the Church. Archdeacon Browne intoned from the pulpit: 'There is a wild man after descending from the mountains and it is the man of the triple name: Dan Paddy Andy.' A constant source of anecdotes, he lived by his wits and by his skill in repartee. It was in his later years that his fame spread far and wide, from his native Kerry, when the television cameras of RTE, BBC and ITV came to his door.
