Re: Donegal Pass BEECH STREET

Hi My late mother Margaret Annie (Nan) Mulholland used to live in BEECH STREET when she was a child in the 1930s. I wonder if anyone would have elderly relatives who lived there then and may remember her or her sisters Joan and Clara. They went to the school on Donegal Pass and used to play on the flat rooftop I believe?! They lived with widowed father James and he was a shoemaker at the co-op on York Street. Sadly he also died in 1938 and the girls were split up and went to live with relatives in Lurgan, Portadown and Bangor. I would be grateful for any info? Thanks Colin

"having my 1st beer in roddys at bottom of howard st south. many more memories too numerous to mention, great days and getting older is crap."
Worked in Howard St South for 15 years in Angus House.  So many memories also about those places and faces and times when life seemed so much less complicated.  So much life around there back then and so dead now.
Getting older is most certainly Crap.
 
Stop the ride, I want to get off and go back.

My mother, May Edmonds as she was then, met my father when he was in 'digs' in one of the big houses at the police station end of the Donegall Pass in the late 40's/early '50's. She worked in a home bakery (Tom Boyd's?) across the road.
