That was my favourite song tho I was still at high school. Got it on a CD somewhere.

My Ma's first job was at a sewing factory called something like Dookis and Greens.

Did your Bamford family have relatives in Bangor?
My Dad used to lodge with an old lady named Violet Bamford.

My Mum ,Kathleen McCready,worked in the Swiss Embroidery on the Dublin Road sometime in 1944 and my Dad Christy Harris was a Belfast Tailor in firm called "Tyrone" and "McAlsters.' Dads father had a work shop in the Cathedral Buildings in Lower Donagal St. Iwas wondering if anyone out there has has a suite made by Louis Harris my uncle or even by Christy Harris my Dad.
