It was the Co Op, you just ordered the coal. Thought you were watching football.

The shop was definitely the Co Op. Remember it well, first time with my mother in law  to order coal, she made sure she got the Divi. :D

Can't remember what I had for lunch today - but I can remember Mum's Co-op
number from the 1950's.  94158.  :o
Stop the ride, I want to get off and go back.

Davy was a friend of my husband and I knew he had died after the accident, I didn't want to say until I found out more info.

Thanks a lot for all your help. I was finding out for someone who was going out with him 40 years ago and she wanted to know where he was buried and what actually happened to him. Thanks again for the help.

jambo thanks for this, don't know how much is in this but i had heard that the 'accident' was not as clear cut as first thought, you know how rumours are started.

hello again. at the time my friend and i and davy all worked at the city hospital building site, tower block, 1972 / 73. after returning from blackburn davy was involved in accident. we were told he had been using a forklift to lift another someway to fix it. on doing this it had toppled over and crushed him. i remember his brothers name now, think it was tommy, sisters name rita, i think, buried in dundonald cemetary, not far from the main gate slightly to the left, i  went to his funeral , but as you say 40 years now,,,he used to live in silvergrove street,,,,back of mc quistons school if memmory serves me right, then moved to elm street near to the conduit street end, not far from harkness's chippy.. hope that helps

Jambo, again thanks for your help, one last thing, do you remember him ever mentioning or do you know a girl from Sligo that he was seeing at that time.
