Don't know if it is the same family but there were girls called Ellis [Maeve, I think] and their brother is quite an accomplished artist but I have forgotten his first name. St James's Park, I think.

The same family, indeed: Maeve is one of Frankie and Maire's daughters; Mary-Rose is another. The artist brother is Brendan.

I remember Margaret Taggart, Margaret Doyle, Bernadette Burns, Marie Dawson, Margaret McGuiness, Geraldine Donnelly, all from St James Road Lily Brennan Lily Goodall and Perpetual Carleton  from the Crescent, Ann Lenagan, Mary Cahil from the Gardens, Teresa Branagh, Kathleen Boyle from St Katherines Road, to name a few. I was in the same class as most of them. I lived in the Place, and then at 65a St James's Road when I got married, next to Dan's shop (originally Leesons) I worked in it too when Roy was the owner. Sadly he was electrocuted  Breige Janet and Irene Jenkins Florence + Brenda Perry Dolores Donaghy Bernie Dolan were my neighbours and great friends growing up as were many of those I have mentioned. Ann Maguire Frankie Burns Julia Donnelly, Margaret Kelly were from the Parade. Kathleen O Callaghan lived at the top of St James Road, also my chums.  All great people, some sadly deceased. I wonder where they all are now. Funny I can remember so many of my friends growing up and yet I forget the names of folk I have worked with in later years. Well I hope to get some response, in the meantime. Slainte.

Did you know a Mary Veronica McCullagh, address given as living with her married sister in 65a St James road around 1969 / 1970?
