Stuck on a few for a local quiz, if the group has a THE in the name it has been omitted, could be some old ones here
1 - Someone living in Wales or Ireland perhaps ? (8)
2 - Throwing a Cowboy off his horse (3,7)
3 - Certainly not a Rubbish Singer (3,1,4,3)
4 - A Rambling Scotsman (5,6)

Thanks in Advance

1 Westlife has been previously suggested
4 Scott Walker ?
2 Roy Rodgers?
3 is Rag n Bone Man
I'm not sure about Westlife for 1. If it was 9 I'd suggest Foreigner, but it seems it is 8
2- i think the singer's surname was only 6 letters- ROGERS
I'm wondering whether anyone has had any further thought on Q1 and Q2.
For Q1, I wondered whether rthere was a reference to Bangor (one in Wales, one in N Ire) but I can't think of a name.
For 2 I have been though names of some real and fictional famous cowboys to no avail. cowboy could = bull I suppose. Something about bucking?
3,7 artists include Def Leppard, Sex Pistols, Jim Crochet- but none fits teh clue

For 1 I can't see anything hidden in clue either. For 3, no anagrams work for me
^For 2, not 3, sorry.
Is the clue for 2 definitely right- especially the letter count- please 6407?

Hi Definitely 3,7 (I was wondering about Big Country or things to do with Cowboys, Sex PISTOLS but not sure if either make much sense
I like the big Country suggestion. In the film The Big Country a memeorable part of the story is when McKay rides a bronco horse called Old Thunder. To show he is no coward he rides it and after being thrown to the ground numerous times until the horse becomes exhausted, McKay triumphantly rides it back into the stable.
Any further thoughts, 6407? Have you plumped for Big Country?
Question Author
Hi Fiction Factory Still no further forward with this one it's driving me and just about everyone else crazy, I will have to go with Big Country unless we come up with anything else before the weekend
Thanks for Asking - 6407
What is the problem with the Westlife answer?
Can't suggest an alternative but Gregory Peck was most definitely not a cowboy in the Big Country, he was a gentleman seaman who knew nothing of ranch life. Doesn't seem a good clue for him.
I haven't been able to improve on Westlife yet Talbot, but if that's the answer I don't think it's a great clue. Yes, Wales and Ireland are west of much of England and mainland Europe, but if so it could just have easily said living in loads of other places- Cornwall, Blackpool, Ayr, Iceland...
I agree with your reservations about the Big Counry character Prudie but I can't think of anything 3,7 that fits better- certainly not the Sex Pistols or Jim Crochet. Was there a horse called Bad Manners in a cowboy film?
No, I see your point (where are you able to search with the specific letter count??)
I've looked through all sorts relating to rodeos, broncos,mustangs etc but can't pin it down.
