It's not for me to say but I think that our friend 'solace' is a member of one of those families  I mentioned earlier - Ellis, Maginniss, Stewart etc. There weren't THAT many who were brave (or was it foolhardy enough) to expose themselves to ridicule by playing guitar out there. I remember Billy Ellis and I don't think it's him, I don't think the young guy Stewart (was it Junior?) played guitar but one of the Maginnisses definitely did

lived in tullyard, way one of the grahams i remember.  smyth"s  /magill"s / tommy dickson / greerson"s/ gray"s/mc veigh"s /simpson"s /daivd henry . hope some of u get in touch  :smile: ;) very  :angry2: if u don"t

Lived (1955 - 1965) near the Griersons, knew Tommy Dickson (& the family) well, the Campbells (all of them), the Boals (Ann) who had a Scottish connection, the Dohertys (Irene), the Grays, the McVeighs (Bridget, Billy & Ernie), the Craigs (Jim & Roy), McLaughlins (especially Eileen, a good friend), the Simpsons (Helen & Benny), Amanda Davidson, Alfie Caughey (? spelling) who used to sit on the corner & sing Elvis songs, John Good, Cowdens (Edith), McKays (family), Ramsays (Valerie), Paisleys (Irene & Margaret), Littles (Doreen & Sally), Rileys/Reillys, Millars (Frances), Mulhollands (Lorna and John, Carncaver Rd), the Wallaces (the only ones with a phone in those days and who used to perform a great community service, taking & passing on messages if someone was in hospital - thank you!). The name Billy Ellis definitely rings a bell too.  Those were the days, my friends!  Hello everybody!! :smile: :smile:

Hi Kraftcheese,
My cousin is Ann Boal.  She lives in Glasgow now, her mother lives in Girvan. My uncle David (her Dad) died about 10 yrs. now. I remember the Cambells, they lived across the street from Ann.  when my Mum and I were on holiday in the early 90's we had a nice visit with the Campbells.  We lived in 72 Clonduff dr.  I was only 4 when we left but I do remember our neighbour's child having to go to Switzerland because of TB.  Also I remember Coronation day, the streets all full of tables and us eating and celebrating outside.  You're right they were the days. If you want to PM me with your real name I can tell Ann.

I think I should know you too Solace.  I remember Jim Langford, Jim Tweedie, wee Victor, and Charlie McVeigh (I made a mistake and said Ernie).  I'll PM you and give you my real name.

Hi olelad,  We might well be talking about two different families.  The McLaughlins (different spelling) I knew lived next door to me for a few years and then moved away.  I was good friends with Eileen. There could well have been another McLoughlin family in Tullyard.
