Hi all,

I am new here. Just to say hello. My name is Pat and I'm a phone-a-holic! I got the bug and find it hard to let go of it. I look forward to hearing from you all in the future. Happy St Patricks Day too!

Sláinte mhaithe,

What a coincidence! An Irishman named Pat joins this spunky little group on the night before St. Patrick's Day!! ;)

Welcome! What sort of phones do you collect? American? European? Must be pretty expensive getting our American phones across the pond!

Welcome to CRPF, what part of Ireland are you in?

@WEBellSystemChristian - Hi, I have been sourcing telephones locally in Ireland as much as possible, but they are getting hard to come by now at a decent price. Car boot sales are the best option, but getting parts for them is like trying to find hens teeth! I have looked in to getting some from the USA as I would like to get a few 2500's, but they cannot be got here in Ireland.

Ah, like the beer!  I have in-laws in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland.

Yes exactly where the beer comes from. Alas the brewery closed last year and it is now brewed elsewhere :(

My collection has gotten a lot smaller, but I have some interesting pieces. I will post a few pictures later


and Happy St Patricks Day  :)


Mr. Bones

Welcome, patcorr!

Dia dhuit! Conas ata tu?

Foighne agus fáilte romhat...

I hope I did okay, I can only speak a wee bit of Irish Gaelic, and reading/writing is much harder! :o

I am very glad you're here, and look forward to seeing your collection. (We wants pictures!) ;)

Best regards!

Car boot sales are the best option...

Car boots? Is the rain in Ireland so bad the cars wear boots?

ha ha, it's the Irish and English equivalent of the Jumble sale or flea market


A car boot is what we call a trunk. Therefore a boot sale is a fleamarket or outdoor market people setting up tables and selling out of their car trunks or trucks.
