Morning All, I think this photo needs to be on this thread, all the women are from Carrickhill and worked in the  old Campbells Mill, my Grannie Holden nee Lizzie O'Hara is the third one in seated in the middle row and was somewhre between 16 -18 at the time, her sister Maggie is the young girl on the end of the middle row also seated.  Perhaps some of you know others in the photograph as it is a little bit of the Hill's history, Lizzie lived in California Street as agirl and in her early married live then moved to Upton Street where she lived next door to the Irvines, they later moved to Turf Lodge and live in the same street as Honeycombe (Monaghan) who lived across the road.
Get down on your knees and thank God you are still on your feet.

Hi to all!
I loved the photo of Stanhope Street. My grandparents owned a shop at the corner of Old Lodge Road & Stanhope St. Is the photo of the lower half - looking towards Lime Street? I think it is (from my memory).  The tall building (bottom right) was a pawnshop. I vaguely remember the Holden family being mentioned by them  in Upton St.  Were they someway friends of the Reillys? I lived at Wall St and later with my Aunt & Uncle (RIP) in California St. I also recall the name Lizzie O'Hara mentioned by them many years ago.  I am also anxious to trace the 1980's calendar photo named the "Marley bunkers", taken at the bottom of Unity Street. If anyone out there has it I would be most grateful for a copy. The photo of the Mill girls is a cracker! It reminds me of the song "You might easy know a doffer,when she comes in to town with her long yellow hair and her pickers hanging down!" O0

I remember my ma sending me for milk and bread in big Isaac Nolan's shop, usually last thing at night.  I think Nolan's and Lizzie Loughran's in California Street were the last 2 shops in Carrick Hill.

  Yes you'll easy know a doffer for she always gets her man ;D ;D O0  Friendly with the Reilys as far as I know, you might find the photo you are looking for in a book called Green Peas and ~Barley O which is all about Carrickhill

Don't remember Issac but definitely remember Lizzie and her brother who was a miserable old so and so, when they left the Hill they opened a shop on North Queen Street but don't know much about them after that
