Hi Declan, many thanks for the photo's, they look great.  Too bad all things must change.  I'm sure the whole area has changed, I probably would be lost.
P Brennan & Mickys look familiar as does the Clonard House for sure.

Say hello to everyone.

Micky (Michael) is my brother Myles.

Hi Folks.
I used to live in Clonard Street no 6. My name is Sean Fusco. I was an alter boy at Clonard. I went to St Galls primary school Waterville Street then onto St Pauls Beechmount.

Sean, Do you also have a sister Teresa, if so, we meet up once a year or so for a catch up. We went to St Vincents together. :)

Sean - Did you have a sister or cousin called Sandra.  Fusco was a known name around the lovely St. Louise's.

Wow Sean I ran around with your sister Teresa for years and Mary Magee that lived across the road on Clonard Gdns
i lived in Panton St but we had many good laughs along with Roseleen Laverty that had the Blue Bird happy memories all around.

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.
Politicians are like a bunch of bananas. .not a straight one among them.
