Then I could hurry home with free fresh soda and potato bread that my father would add to a magnificent Ulster fry, which he cooked while listening to Big T playing Billie Joe Spears on Downtown Radio. A tiny crumb on the streets of a city still feeding off ancient rivalries, that were well past their sell-by date. The Bee Gees fill the airwaves, everyone is in love with Princess Leia, and Breadboy's love of peace and pets is soon rivalled by his interest in parallel universes and punk.

He always wore old-fashioned slacks with braces and a shirt and tie under his white coat, just like my chemistry teacher, except Leslie’s white coat was bakery regulation rather than scientific attire. Unlike me, after my only bottle of Brut aftershave had run out, it never smelt bad on a Saturday morning. While it was true that Leslie could not be tempted with strong liquor, he was a sucker for a caramel square.

This wondrous vehicle was grander than my father’s Ford Escort respray and more welcome than a Shankill black taxi when the buses were off. The Breadboy keeps bread fresh with the use of it Wesco's unique back ventilation holes that allows for air circulation. His debut novel Belfast Gate (so it is, 2019) is a satirical comedy drama set in 2019 about a group of Catholic and Protestant women who start a campaign to take down Belfast’s 50 year old peace walls. The Breadboy bread bin is available in an array of colours, from rich almond, to modern black and stylish purple, through to vibrant shades of green and is made from high-quality, colour-coated steel with a chrome stand. We’d love to see young people who can sing, dance and act and the roles will be cast depending on their strengths.

Leslie was tall but he was quite overweight from snacking on the pastry temptations that were always surrounding him. Sooner or later, Breadboy is sure they ll become a proper couple like Paul and Linda, and Judy will be his girl.But on other occasions I was bored rigid when he repeated for the millionth time the same story about Mrs Piper’s affair with a man from a gospel hall up the Newtownards Road ‘and her that good livin’ and all’. Auditions will take place in Dublin on January 30, venue to be confirmed, at St Cecilia’s House, Derry on February 5, Lyric Theatre, Belfast on February 6 and at the Spectrum Centre, Shankill Road and Falls Road Leisure Centre, Falls Road, on February 18. My family were trying to keep us safe and I was trying to work out what it was all about, when all I was really interested in was my wee job, science fiction, Star Wars and girls. When Breadboy Tony Macaulay was growing up on the Shankill in the 70s, the Troubles were ever-present and times were hard. Leslie was very holy but I realised that he must have had sex a few times because he had young children.

In spite of the fact that jobs were a rarity in Belfast, I had just secured my second major contract of employment. Both worked on Paperboy too, with Duke Special, aka Peter Wilson, composing the music and Doyle writing the lyrics.In 2014 Tony was asked to present the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards to young people from Northern Ireland on behalf of the Earl of Wessex. While Paperboy was set in 1975 when the author had just turned 12 and had bagged himself a new job selling the Belfast Telegraph, Breadboy takes place in 1977. Directed by Steven Dexter and Dean Johnson with particularly creative use of the crowd barriers in the second act, Breadboy showed what life in that time and this place was like. In a remote village nestling between the beautiful hills of Rwanda, the reconciled survivors and perpetrators of genocide told me they would pray for my land, that the walls that still divide our hearts and our streets would one day be torn down forever. He is from an ordinary family who have decent values and have given their children a sense of Christianity ,self worth,good humour and hard work.

Who would care about a United Ireland or a United Kingdom, as long as we had a fresh malt loaf on the table? An interesting read telling the story of a bright young teenager trying to find a way through life in the Upper Shankill, a Protestant working class area in Belfast.

In 2016 Tony was asked to present the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards to young people from Northern Ireland on behalf of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
