Blowin' like ole Billyo (origin)

Posted by Marlow on October 07, 2004

I guess "Blowin'Like old Billyo" means 'with great speed' (irish slang) and also used in the area of St. Ives (Cornwall) for in a text I came across this local phrase: "Damme we had been a blowin like old billyo"

any ideas on the origin of this one???
