Hi Nellie or was it Maggie liked a bottle of stout. Use to go to the bar at the corner of the next street to Cape st for 2 bottles of stout them. I think the bar was called Reaveys. Brings back many good memories.

Hi Jimmy Cullen, I have just registered on the forum.  I'm Patsy McCartney from # 1.  You lived a couple of doors below the O'Hara's.  The Murrays are my cousins.  Where are you living in Canada?  I also live in Canada in Ottawa.

Lets see now who I remember from the street, there was an old couple beside us at number 3 but I cannot remember their names, then #5 was the Quinns, #7 The Murrays my cousins, #9 the Mc Brinns,# 11 Corrigans, then came Alice Malone she was spinster and we loved to torture the poor woman, kick her door and run like hell. I remember she was the first in the area to have the lead glass in her door. I was the idiot who broke it. My Da was a plumber and he could do the lead glass, so he had to take it and rebuild it. I can tell you I was sore for a long time from the hiding I got.
 
Moving on, on the other side of the gateway was the O'Hara's, remember the big yard in the street? Below them 2 doors down were the Cullens,next I remember on that side were the Muldoons.
Moving across the street were the Buttimers, Anthony and I used to hang around together,  next were the Maguires, If I remember the father got hurt when a gangway collapsed in the shipyard some of the workers were killed. Then Comes the Girvans they lived at the lampost which I smashed on a regular basis, kept the old lamplighter in a job, then there was Frank McArdle who lived with his sister and Mother, the last name I remember was the Mc Intyres across the Street from  us in #4 I can see other faces but due to being a senior citizen their names escape me. John Mc Nally and My cousin Kathleen who he married moved into the Corrigans house after they left.

A few more names have percolated up in my memory, There were the Byrnes who lived on one side Of the Cullens and the Mannings who lived on the other side, then on the other side at # 12 I think were the Martins.  Jim Cullen's grandparents lived beside the Martins.
