I went to St Louises with Maudie Quinn from Cape Street in the mid /late 60`s .  Lillikins - remember that wee hill well :) :)
   

Maudie Quinn is my cousin. Her dad and my mum were brother and sister. My Uncle Frank Maudies dad died there not so long ago Maudie lives in Clonard Street now My name is MAGDALENE. We lived in Market but i remember going up to Cape st as a child. I remember air raid shelter and like a large Trough filled with water for the horses .As horse and carts were part of daily living for all house hold necessity s.You ptoo young to remember.

Does anyone remember the Doolan family who lived in Cape Street before and possibly after WW2. Any idea what number house they lived in?

Rocky1, Are you the person that sent me the private mesage yesterday from Conway St?  If so, sorry bud. I asked the question back in April and did not link your reply to my question. I will mention your name to Michael later this month as my wife and I are heading home to Belfast for a few days.
