Bann Street
« on: January 05, 2010, 09:36:28 PM »
I just seen a post about Aggie Kennedy and her tattoos. The post said she lived in the first house in Bann St. I would it call it the last house. The Moodys lived in the first house, No.1
I also remember the Scotts, Simpsons, Hollands (wee Robbie) and the Fergusons and McAuleys. Wonder where they all are now. And does anyone remember anyone else from Bann Street? Nearly forgot the Thompsons!! ::)

210 yrs - that's fabulous!  I know of Bobby McClean and Maggie McVeigh.  I used to stay with my Granny at the weekend sometimes, but she died when I was about 11 so I was too young to remember any great detail.  I'll ask my cousin if she remembers anymore about them.
