I used to live in Amcomri Street with my Granny too though I was born in Earlscourt Street. I'm now living in Dublin (although temporarily in Lancashire right now). One of my uncles was a breadserver at JBs as well.
 
JB Kennedy's bread
It sticks to your belly like lead
etc etc
I lived in Harrogate Street and now also live in Dublin
