My mum's family (O'Connors) lived at 151 until the early/mid 70's I think.  Moved to Ladybrook after that.
I could dance with you til the cows came home.  On second thoughts, I'd rather dance with the cows til YOU came home.

My Dad's 2 brothers lived in St James Road. Arthur and Mary and their kids Colette and Artie lived in #115 and Joe and Bridget and their family, Joe, Elizabeth and John lived in #80.
Aunt Mary just died last year aged 96 and had been living with Colette for some years so the house was empty but it sold late last year I believe,

That would be the O'Neills at 115. Where is arty & Collette now? Give them my regards Jnr McGarry no 86. I heard Mrs O'Neill died last year and believe she was the last of the parents who lived there when we were young.

Yes, I wasn't too smart with that post was I!! I forgot to give their surname. .both families were O'Neill.   Colette lives in Ladybrook and Artie isn't too far from her. I am in contact with Colette by email and I call her now and again (I live in Canada). Her name is McCaffrey.
When we were young we visited their family a fair bit. My Dad actually lived with Arthur and Mary when they were first married, he was an orphan. Imagine being only married and having a 15 yr old living with you!!!  :-\  I will let Colette know you were asking about her.

Thanks Tipperdarby, I have 4 sisters living in Hamilton, Canada. Colette would know them all, Anne, Renee, Phyllis & Patricia. I think Renee was the main one she shummed around with.

An E Kennedy lived at no 37 but that was too far up the hill for us to know very well so maybe someone else could be more informative.

I should have added that I came to Canada in '69 so Catha would be in her sixties now.
