I remember a bloke went to St Peters from around there.  I remember, he was always up for a laugh,  Hugh Torbett.

I remember the McGonigles well, Margaret and Mary. Very nice people. Hughie Torbitts granny used to live next door to McGonigles and Hughie was rared I think in No.46 Again, a very nice family.

Hi Blue
Is Jimmy MC Gonigle still in Belfast ?   He also had an older brother but I can't remember his name.

There used to be a black girl living on Merrion St. Her name, as I recall, was Doreen Fern. Her adoptive parents has a little parlour shop. I ofter wondered what became of her.
