Don't recall them, I might be too old :scratch_ones_head: HEAVEN FORBID!!   Remember the McConvilles, McKeevers, McCabes, McGlones, Downeys, Campbells - my brother still has a shop at the foot of Iriss Street and Cavendish Street.

Does anyone remember Rosie Helicopter...used to roam around the street with a bottle of Bristol Cream??? Lovely old lady. Can't for the life of me remember her real name. I knew the Tohills from Bombay St, Elish and Joe Strong, Majo and Bernadette Johnson, and going to Mickey shop to buy whoppers!!

Rosie Bradley?

NEVER KNEW MUCH ABOUT CLONARD, BUT IN THE EARLY DAYS, OUR NEIGHBOURS ACROSS THE STREET MOVED TO CLONARD. IT WAS THE HANNAWAYS, KEVIN, DERMOT, TERRY AND THE MUM AND DAD. I WENT OVER A FEW TIMES TO MEET KEVIN, THEN LOST TRACK OF THEM. I READ IN A BOOK ONE TIME THAT THEY WERE RELATED TO GERRY ADAMS. DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW THEY ARE.
   
Arder went to school with big dermot [dermy] hannaway. [st galls] then years later played in a pipe band with him. Very stong chacter, a real gent.
live everyday as your last, because some day it will be :)
