Wait. Wait. Slower boys.  Rebecca asked a question but you just go speeding on ahead.  Nobody answered.  AWAY AND MAKE A DROP OF TEA LOVE.  Maybe better if the boys had answered.  Well hereís Rebeccaís question.

I was just reading my PMs from years ago - as you do when you're bored - and was wondering if anyone had heard from Belfast Girlie. I hope she's okay.

No we havenít heard from Belfast Girlie.  Belfast Girlie played one man off against the other.  She had them eating out of her hand, drinking champagne from her shoe but they were at each otherís throats.  It was very sad to witness Rebecca.  See.  We like Feet Firmly on the Ground Girlies but she took years off the boys.  They thought they were teenagers again.  Sad?  Pathetic.

However

One man stood firm.  DAWSON.  We were so proud of him

But

Belfast girlie went into Belfast to meet Dawson and we donít know exactly what happened.  All we know is that was the end of Belfast Girlie on the column.  The boys pined for a while and asked from time to time where she was but we just ignored them and after a while they stopped pining.  I hope you havenít stirred up sad memories but all respect to the one man who stood firm and believe me it was ONE man.  Iím not including boxer.  Other girlies have come and gone.  Itís less trouble if the boys stick with sensible girlies like you and me.    ;)   Good question, Rebecca

The old trams.  I donít remember them.  We might have been in Wales.  People talked about taking a bus to the end of the lines.  It was the tram lines they were talking about but it was another strange expression to me when we came here at first.  Good pictures as always boxer.

Oh I'm sorry Freda, I was unaware that had happened. Girlie and I mostly sent PMs back and forth, I hope I haven't stirred up sad memories. It occurred to me because a lot of people have left the Forum in these past months, so I looked at the names of people I had sent/received PMs to and from, and though some have passed away or left the Forum because they no longer liked it, there were some names whose absence I couldn't place.

Jimmy, you should send her flowers :)

Boxer and JJ, I donít remember the trams but itís good to the pictures of them. However, in the Sandy Row tram depot there was a tram on the first floor and itís where tram drivers learned to drive. There was some history in that depot.

You old charmer, Jimmy

Years of practice, Dawson.  I can only try.

Rebecca our main aim is to protect these boys.  Their heads are easily turned

Youíre quiet JJ but your photos are great.  The Bank buildings standing in all her glory.  A beautiful building.  Two world wars couldnít do the damage that Primark did.  I hope they bring it back to the building we knew and loved.  Itís so sad to see it like this.
The men are wearing trilby hats and caps and women in hats and not a pair of jeans in sight.  Such interesting photos JJ

Hi!

I was advised to put a query into this thread that I had posted elsewhere!

I am wondering if anyone knows if the Queens Hotel were the IFA was set up in 1888 still exists, and if so, where is it?

In addition, I'm looking for the whereabouts of Knock Park, Bloomfield, where Northern Ireland (Ireland at the time) played their first ever match?

Thanks!
