Hi there, I knew Dolores Reilly who was some sort of "cousin/relative" I think to Doreen  O'Connor who I worked with at the Belfast Mater Infirmorum Hospital Crumlin Road, I heard 2 years ago from someone on BF that Dolores had that died.  I am wondering if this is the person you are asking about. Gerry (Geraldine but Gerry to my friends on BF). :)

law and she died  a few years
ago RIP. :smitten: :angel:

 Chi,

Spamount St was a very long street.  The top, middle and two sections of the lower end but certainly a long lower end below Lepper St.  I don't remember all the shops but certainly not confused about which end is which. ::)
[size=78%]
[/size]
[size=78%]There were shops on the junction of it and Lepper St, also junction of Trainfield St .  Then more on the left where Jim Hanna had a barbers shop.  Where was Reilly shop or is it a secret?[/size] :o [size=78%] [/size]

I think it was # 49

There were lots of huckster
shops in the older neighborhoods :)

   Sam--Mc Grann,s pub was on the corner of Spamount and Trainfield St.When I was young I
               Used to see the ladies going into the snug part in Trainfield St and wondered what a  " snug " was .
                  Looked very secretive!
