Thanks for the information about Richies, Doffer!  :) I can't wait to tell my sister I was right.  Did the ::)  name McMurray mean anything to you? There was an awful lot of them!

And Fulton, thanks for the response regarding Legane St. It's nice to know my 49 year old memories can't be too wrong.

It's been a long day here so I'll say goodnight. Regards Elwood
Hi Elwood, rem Harry McMurray ----best singer of Western songs there was !

I used to live in Lever Street as a kid i remember Joey Crawfords shop Gallagers Chippie
Hi B O B I rem when Joey cut a slice of cheese he would always eat the few crumbs that fell onto the board. And queuing up at Gallagers chippy on a Friday night.  Sometimes Stoker would turn up & livened things up.

Udini I know who you are, I remember the Sharkies.  Where about in Canada are you?

I used to go to St.Marks with Billy Larkin. My Granny Todd lived in Lavens Drive and I would go from there to school.
I am in Edmonton, Alberta, been here since 1977.
Who,what, where,when and why,I think that says it all.

Hi Elwood & Doffer.  I just stumbled across this site accidentally while trying to look up the current Ligoniel Doctor's address & I'm glad I did! Bella Armstrong was my great aunt & it just seems to unreal to see her name mentioned here.  She died when I was only 4 but she was a larger than life character and I still have some very fond & vivid memories of her!  I remember the McMurray sisters well too, and, if I'm thinking of the same Gracey family, I also remember them as they lived next door to my (late) granny in Finlay Street many years ago.  Cecelia (known as "Ceilly") Gracey was a great friend of my granny's & she just celebrated her 100th birthday last August!

Hi Group, Im doing a bit of Family Research, my Great Grandmother was Susannah Smith nee Todd she married William Smith they had Children William, James, Robert, Thomas ( my grandfather) and Mary Jane, i think there may have been another 2 children as per the 1911 Census they were from Wolfhill Avenue.

Im also looking information on the Boyds, My great Grandmother was Sarah Fletcher Boyd who married Thomas Giffen in Canada, Sarahs Mother was called Martha Boyd Im trying to find out who Martha's husband is as i cant seem to find any records, also from Ligoniel - Lesley Street

Many thanks in advance :)  Jac
