"One summer’s day, in December 1881, two days before Christmas, Lawrence Teirney got off his horse bus outside the Whau Hotel on the Great North Road, took off his jacket, rolled up his sleeves, and offered....an expression of the art of fisticuffs in the otherwise quiet rural surroundings. There was a fair bit that led to that moment, and a fair bit after it an’ all" In this episode Lisa Truttman shares a Whau Heritage Story from New Lynn, through the lens of horse bus driver Lawrence Teirney.
