My dad worked with a Tommy Smith from Cape st in the 60s. I think his wife was called Martha and they had twin daughters. I also worked with a guy called Micheal Cullen who was a spark and a big Shadows fan in the 80s.

Shamrock - I only remember a few people from Cape St.  The Mannings - went to St. Louises with Theresa.  There was a girl called Eileen Delahunty - and another family from the other end of the street. the McCartneys.  Also remember having great fun on roller skates further down Cape St  in the part we called the wee hill.  :D

McNamee - Cape St was just off Ross St. The other streets close to it I think were - Balaclava St - Garnet St

One of the other forum members -Arkie-  has a great memory for these streets. He's the fella to ask about this.

Tommy Smith lived right next door to us,hell of a nice guy. My brother Michael Cullen still lives in Belfast and was a 'spark' now retired. Cape St ran between Ross St and Raglan St and was sandwiched  between Balaclava St and Garnet St. The McCartneys lived on the same side of the street as us but in the end house at the top of the street

Hi all, Rainey  use to live in the first house at the bottem end of Cape st.  I remember Nellie Rainey well and she had a sister lived in the house also Maggie was her name. Joe Rainey was a painter  by trade. You well find Joe in the PD Club in Andytown at the weekends. He must be in his 80s and stell likes his pint of double. I was engaged to his stepdaughter who now lives in England. Would love to here from anyone else from the street and there were they are now. Lots of luck Rocky
