I just watched it Bobby, very nice tribute to what was a very much loved brother, sounds like he had a good life and was very well liked, what more could anyone ask for. He would no doubt be proud to know you all thought so much of him  :)    May he Rest In Peace.
Que Sera Sera

a bit before my time gismo  do you remember the tohills and the canavans from there

My father Ben Tohill was born in 1926 and he was from Albert Street. His mother was Annie Canavan. Is that the folks you were thinking if?

The barber shop situated on the corner of Cupar Street and Cawnpore Street was owned by Frank Mulhern during the late 1950s and early 60s. He emigrated with his family to Australia in 1964. Another owner was Davey Rogers. Davy lived in the Beechmount area but was originally from South Down.

Can't agree more with Arkie and Hair.oil's comments above.The Maverick twins were the Kennedy twins from Kane St. and Brian Kennedy their brother was a regular singer in local clubs for many years,a smashing singer.

Hi.. Tony Kennedy - one of the maverick twins was my dad. Would be keen to hear from anyone who knew him and mickey. Cheers!

I remember the Maverick twins,it was hard to miss them with their ginger hair.They were terrific handball players and played money matches for years around the Kashmir Road area in the 1960s and they used to get a crowd watching them.

. Not from the area, but in the late sixties I had to go to a place in Cupar Street for my wages as they acted as the shipping agents, Inthink they also had delivery lorries. Anyone remember what you called the firm,
