Hello There....

My goodness its a long time since anyone has called me "Burnsy"
Yes I grew up with Philip real nice guy and has done well for himself ....I spoke to his wife a few years back when she worked in a local shop that my Bakery supplied...very nice lady in deed.
I knew Dominic also even though he was older than me ...was real sorry to hear of his death at such an early age ....such a waste.. just like my Brother-in-law Brendan Magennis known as "Beanie" who died in a horrible road accident on the Newry Rd ...
Laurence and Bill were far older so I never really knew them as for you girls I can't really remember you guys at all...I'm sure my wife Maureen would know them.
I moved away from Ponsonby when I was about 11 or 12 to Glengormly and stayed there till about 1990 then moved back to Belfast because of my business.
Anyway nice of you too contact me send my regards to Philip and tell him to start taking it easier now @59 he needs to slow down as I intend to slow down myself.
Take care
Gerry

Hi Sam..
Thank you for your reply.... but I can't place you in The Glen Inn...Yes it was my favourite haunt in the 70's ,,,,so please clarify who you are as you obviously know me.

Yes I know the Sweeney's  .Dennis is a Doctor on the Crumlin Rd... John is a Barrister as is the youngest Brother Eamon.
I also knew the Bannons and I went to School with Philip who lives at the top of our Street and is currently self-employed as a Plumber.
Look forward to hearing from you Sam..

Kind regards
Gerry

Zasus wept  ;) ;)   It must be awful to be growing old but you are about 10 years younger than me.   Clue number 1.....who was un the car with you on the night you were being taken to hospital for a cut wrist when the window fell on top of your hand.    It was ?????.     When I was talking about Sweeney I was meaning Sweeney Todd who posted a few posts back.     :D  .hello??...aah yes  ::)

Hello Hugh. .the penny will eventually drop.? ;)   How is life with you.  Quite a number of blokes whom I knew later went to the Holy Family school.  I can't remember them all but, Philip Hart, George Rooney, Barney Mc  Laverty,Charlie Malone.  I could go on but they were blokes, including yourself who went to the H.F. school.....almost forgot the O'Neills whose father was principal of Bearnageeha . :D

I do remember Holy Family School.    Most vivid memory was when my mother went up to visit Miss Hoey for hitting me on my ears for not getting my books put away quickly enough.    When my mom came to the classroom Miss Hoey said excuse me just let me let the children leave first and my mother told her no that's okay they didn't have to leave yesterday when you hit my daughter around her ears so they can stay to listen now.    She proceeded to tell her that she would take her to the high court and needless to say Miss Hoey was never anything but nice to me from that day forward.    Funny thing was I did not tell my mom in fear of getting hit again for not listening to the teacher but my cousin had told her mom who told mine.   Hahaha thanks Celia.   After that when she would ask me if I had done my homework and I said no she would quickly say oh that's okay!!!!!

There were two families with the same name.  Philip Hart , was the one whom I knew and he had a brother who did indeed become a priest.  The other family of Harts I also remember.  Kevin has/ had an office in Glengormley. ;)
