My Great Gran's house was at the bottom of St James RD the family name was Flynn, my gran lived there and my sister and I were there most weekends. I wanted to transfer to the school cause I like the brown and yellow uniform. I remember the Kelly's, and Roonies, and Mrs Young who used to live next door. I remember the sweet shop in the street behind.  :)  miss those days even though some were tough with the troubles

the shop beside the tie factory used to belong to an old dear  (can't remember her name ) but we used to wrap a halfpenny in silver parer from a chocolate bar and pass it on as a shilling  she had very bad eyesight  and I used to chum around with Tom as pointed out they were a very quiet but lovely  family Eros  :)

I knew john doran in the 70s early eighties, a good man, is he still around?, anyone remember the murals on the walls of the match factory( mc kenna & mcginleys in side them ) watched the students paint them, tha was when I worked for mc ginleys.
