Davy Tweed, the man who threw rugby balls for a living, was also accomplished at throwing some of his children around when he felt like it.

“I was under his fist quite a few times,” his daughter Catherine told Sunday World journalist Nicola Tallant. “I remember one day... he was hitting my head off a radiator... he physically threw me to the ground.”
