Joe Richards, while at school at Villanova College, Coorparoo, borrowed a priest’s regalia, and took himself up to Loretto College, offering to hear the girls’ confessions. I’m not sure how far he got, but I vaguely remembered the incident when reminded by Janine Walker before our ABC radio spot this morning.
She also told me that Richards supplied Paul Keating with his Zegna suits, all from his store in Woolloongabba.
There’s got to be better stuff than that out there, so I thought I’d leave this post as a sort of open thread on one of Brisbane’s more memorable characters. Leave a comment, or send me an email.
