Go way ye Tarry Boy

Do ye know the expression "Go way ye Tarry Boy"? Well someone told me that years back a priest up by the Lee Fields felt very strongly about couples carrying on behind the bushes. So, he put black tar on the branches, and of course fellas got tar on their ars... Their backs. The next day, sure people would see it and the saying was coined "there's a tarry boy for ye".
