Nmmm. Why is it that every girl in the Beltex 'worked in the office' ?  :D
Not every girl did tboy.  Una Toal was before me, I was only there six or 8 months. Don't know who took my place.  The managers were very nice - Mr. Harrison and G. W. Hall.

An neighbour of mine Betty Donnelly worked in the Beltex.Anyone recall her? This was in the 50's.
Did she live in Butler Street?  I know there were Donnellys a few doors up from my Granny.

I also worked in Beltex, late 40's, knew Freddy Gilroy very well, went to see Freddy when he owned a bar, think it was in Bangor. Does anyone remember where the bar was located?
