Yep, I remember it.  Do you remember Nelly McGinnis??  The funniest story I remember is that my Granny gave her a new pair of waterboots.  The next day she appeared in Butler Street without the boots and when Gran asked where her boots were she said "I wore them to bed and some f.  stole them in the middle of the night".  Poor Nelly.

Wasn't there a shop at the corner of Crumlin St and Flax st, I seem to remember a wee shop or a chip shop or something, can't remember, it would have been on the left hand side walking down Crumlin st towards flax st

There was a shop in Flax Street, just around the corner from Crumlin Street - Donaghy's.  They had lovely Neopolitan Ice Cream!!

You know what Glen, I kind of remember something in Crumlin Street.  Some of their wee houses had that half door set-up and I think I remember going around there for cigarettes for Granny (maybe when the other shops were closed).

Have been reading this Forum for a while, but just registered this evening. I remember the 'dam' well!  It was called the Potfield Dam, and smelled to the high heavens. I guess there were no environmentalists in Ardoyne.The parish built a school on the lot next to it (on Butler St. I believe).  Annalivia ::)

Arder,
I was looking at that picture of the GAA fellows again. I know some of them but I started remembering names from my days going into "The Club" as we called it. You will know some of the names so in no order at all I remember, Paddy Mulrine, Pat O'Connor (Kateme's uncle) Paul and Danny Gowdy, Malachy and Charlie Toner, Frankie Mc Keown and his younger twin brother Joe and ? Seamus Flanagan, John Laphen, Pat Murphy and his young brother Ciaran RIP, Ted Mc Quaid RIP and his young brother Brian, Danny Clarke, Paul Shevlin, Denis Mc Mullan, Paul Frame, Tommy Rafferty, Gerry Cullen and his Dad old Gerry Cullen (he used to recite a great poem called "the Fartin'Competition and he had everyone in stitches no matter how many times he did it) Harry Maguire, Jimmy Lynch and Frank Clarke were older but still went into the club.
Lots more I'm sure but that's it for now.
