Can remember hiring out a bike from someone in Handcart Avenue, not sure who it was. Also someone who sold lollies and soft drinks by the cupful.

Jimbov, the only Verners I knew were the mother and daughter who lived next door to my aunt in number 63 Canmore st.  The Bingham name rings a bell but thats about all.  My granny lived in Midland st her name was Ma Hill.Her son Tommy and my brother John Haveron started the flute band  The Sons of Shankill  ???? Might have got the name wrong !!!  Buttons Drumgoule ( not sure of the spelling) was in the band at the beginning,I see he passed away a few weeks ago. Nella...

Hello Nella I'm Ethel McGranaghans (nee Hill) son Jim
hoping you are well ,seen a few of your posts and realise how hard it must have been at the time to be in a mixed marriage.
Here in England i married a catholic girl,have both catholic and protestant  children  and love all them the same.
I didn't forget my roots ,i just learnt to be more tolerant towards others.
I remember Wilton street and crossland street even though i was only about 6 years old
The Shankill is my home and always will be,even though i live in Salford

Supermom - can you tell me a little about your granny Maria Shaw?   Children...
 
Thanks Herbie

Sincere Apologies, didnt get notifications of these posts and only by accident came across it.  My granny was Maria Shaw married to George Shaw, they had about 8 children, 6 boys, George, Bert, Herbie, Bobby, Billy and Victor, and two girls Margaret ( my mum) and Eveline.   

I spent most of my childhood in Wilton Street, there used to be a shop at the top which sold curtain material and she always gave me a bag of " clippings" to make dolls clothes with!!

I went to " The NIck" sunday school, and spent all my pocket money in either Mary Cowans or Maggie Logans!!!!

We hired out bikes from the shop round at " the swings"   

Sorry again for delay in replying.

Tommy Hill Snr. and his sons Frankie and Thomas jr where members of the pride of shankill, i believe both joined in 1965 john haveron was also in the pride of shankill but they all started up the shankill fusiliers a few years back.
 
The Pride of Shankill was formed from the Edenderry No' 2 Flute Band in 1962 after a disagreement with Edenderry No 1 Flute Band and some of the founding members of the POS were, Robert Hillis, Alex Orr, George Cole, Allister Cousins, Tommy Beresford, Buttons Drumgoole, John Baird, Nigg** McCann, Danny Godfrey, Crawford Brown and Billy Yates.
 
Thats what i've gathered so far on the POS.  ;) 
 
Any pics of the pride of shankill would be greatly appreciated.

Ulster Canadian,I don"t think Tommy Hill snr started up any band in the last few years as he has been dead for about 14 years.  As for my brother John Haveron,I"m not sure but I don"t think he is in any band at all these days. He is 72 years old. I haven"t been in touch with Thomas jnr or Frankie for years so I don"t know if they are connected to any band.   Nella....
