Post 120

Like all of us, I’m sure you have driven past the café at the top of the town with the intriguing name, “Three-Sixteen”.

There has been much speculation and conjecture as to what this numerical nomenclature might refer. Could it be the gradient of the hill, the I.Q. range of the customers or even a reference to the lowest score ever achieved by Antrim’s opponents in the Ulster Championship?

One crazy theory doing the rounds is that the name is taken from the Gospels. I can assure readers that I took three-quarters of an hour this morning to go through all seven Gospels and I could find no mention of the phrase. We did find 5 loaves and 2 fishes, 12 apostles, 4 horsemen of the apocalypse and 14 beatitudes but despite checking, not 7 times but 77 times 7 times, we could find no definitive proof.

We must now leave it in your capable (albeit slightly deranged) hands for solutions to this mathematical conundrum.

Intriguing?

  1. Could it have something to do with that little red bit at the center of the dart board….eg…A LOAD OF BULL

  2. Three sixteens is forty nine, so is she fifty next year? The tea shop rate is blowing a heavy moderate. I’ll get back to ye later with the math.
