Anyone point me towards archive records for these places, particularly workers at either of these locations? Any snippets welcome. Thanks.

THE BEAST OF CAPTAINS GREEN by idd (Member 10011093) on 27-Apr-2000
It is coming up to the anual HOWLING on Captins Green, facing the MOUNT HOTEL IN GALSWOTHY AVENUE.
At the first full moon in May of each year, at approx 2am, the figure of a yet unidentified male is seen pushing a wheelbarrow around the GREEN, whislt howling with joy.
Faint echos of "more" "more", can also be heard.
Does anybody know the identity of this mystery man.
AND NO his name is not DAVID BANNER.
