Hi All,
I would like to be added to the North Belfast list. I lived on the New Lodge Road from birth (1951) til 1970 when we left Belfast for good  :-[.
We lived next door to the Lyceum picture house right at the top of the New Lodge. I have 6 sisters 2 of which who you may have known through their frequent attendance at the dance halls. I am Irene (1951) Angela(1946) Nuala (1948) I think the others would have been too young to be known by any of usens but they are Winifred (1956) Margo (1961) Colette & Carmel (1965) and coming up the rear our one and only boy John (1967). I mostly went to the Maritime Club bit Angela and Nuala went to Romanos & The Orchid. I had the happiest of childhoods, growing up in Belfast in the 60s and feel sorry for the children of today who cant have the freedom we enjoyed. We pratically lived in the Alexanders Park and loved Queen Mary's Gardens. The Waterworks was a bit boring but we liked the 'lake'.
Best Regards Irene
You practically lived in Alexandra Park! Could you tell me more about the park and would you have any photos of the park at that time that you would like to share

There's a great photo of the Alexandra Park Gate Lodge on the Planning Architecture Design Database Ireland website (www.paddi.net).

Hiya Irene,

Someone has been slipping up. A belated Welcome to the Forum.

I hope you had a great Christmas and are having a Peaceful and Prosperous New Year.

BTW living next door to a cinema sounds great. Were you able to sneak in to see the movies for Free ???

Christopher.

Sorry for the delay in replying with the name of the road Stan.

My friends who live near Saintfield do not know the name so I'll have to drop into the Enterprise Bar in Ballynahinch when the person who lived in Saintfield is on duty and ask if she remembers. I could go to the chip shop and ask her daughter .. if she doesn't know she can tell me when her Mum will be on duty at the pub.

I'll get back to you on this one.

Chris

The school is not there any more stewie. It was probably there in the 1940s and 50s. Do you visit the library at Ballygomartin? They might have some info about the school. I'll send Mary a snail mail letter and ask for more info. If the library have any info would you post the details on the site. 

BTW Thanks for asking your question. I came across I site I'd missed NiYouthinfo.org ... ur info ur way and have created a link to the Forum.

Thanks Christopher  i got the Saintfield site up and i see the old White Horse bar is still there  never been in it though  but it was near the wee shop at the end of the  street where we'd pick up our food before heading up to the farm.    As i said that was in the 40,s and   50.s.
