Hiya bubbie,

Castlereigh Place ... no such place. Castlereagh Place runs from 33, Castlereagh Street to 174, Woodstock Road. Mary Lennon may help you if she can spare the time from nattering as she has several directories for the period about which you are enquiring.

Hiya bubbie,

I sent her a message. If you want to send any one a message either look for a message sent by them .. click on their name and scroll down their profile to the line where it says send this member a message. You can also find members by going to the site's main index and at the foot of the page on the right hand side you'll find the number of members. Click on that and at the top of the page you'll get a facility for an alphabetical search.

Is the big stone still on the corner of Albertbridge Rd. and Castlereagh St.  outside the pub, i was told that was for the drunks to help them climb on their horse to go home but i'm sure they're are a lot of different stories .

Ulsterstan,I remember that big stone and my mother telling me it was known as the"Mount".Yip,for anyone wishing to climb aboard their horse.
          Tell your dear wife please that my daughter is off to Aberdeen for Hogmanay...she will have a "fash supper" no doubt.
     If your wife wants a wee reminder of her home town she can google Hector Brocklebank---a guy called Robin Galloway...she will love it-A guid New Year to ane n' a' exiles,G. :)

Its still there although Clancy's Bar is now a bookies... I think theres a plaque there in front of it now though but I can't be sure as I'm usually on a bus when passing it...
