Cissy Youngs - to Rosa Alice Branco - by Paul Durcan

"That first year in Cork City - '71/'72 - I spent the afternoons from four to six

Sitting alone sipping pints of Smithwicks in a public house on teh Bandon Road, Cissy Young's, reading Bishop Berkeley's A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge.

I, ex-footballer, ex-hurler, ex-high-jumper, branded by the dominant males of the Irish tribe "a hippy" rejoiced in the eighteenth-century, I sat in the private lounge, as distinct from the public bar, because the private lounge was nearly always empty.

Men in the public bar saluted me through the hatch. Cissy Young's, all formica, banquette, more anonymous, cosier by far than any salty, arty Kinsale Bar.

That year in Cissy Young's reading Berkeley was a foundation year in my life as a writer and, if I may meekly, profoundly trumpet, my life as the virtuoso university teacher I never became: an attacking player on Berkeley's dream team.

Cissy Young's on the Bandon Road was my University of the Bermudas where I learnt the basics of my trade: learnt to think the hard way, learnt how to head the ball one way, looking the other way; learnt to communicate through the hatch; Cork insurance officials; learnt that reality is poetry, poetry reality; learnt the way of all things; learnt the existence of God - that at five in the afternoon on the Bandon Road in Cork City in Ireland in the empty, private lounge of Cissy Young's "To be is to be perceived."
