I also miss the smell of Belfast, Im thinking about the smell of freshly made breads coming from the many bakeries, but most of all I miss the smell of an Ulster Fry which we would have been lucky to get on weekends,either for breakfast, lunch or teatime.

Abiding memory of Gallagher's on York Street it smelled of tobaco all around there.
Even the overalls of the Gallagher's girls reeked of tobaco.

I worked in Mackiies on the Springfield Road..Walking past Kennedy,s Bakery, the smell of Bread and Dough was Great..
This next one is not about smell, more so colour..I lived on Iveagh Street, as kids we used to play in the fields behind us bordering Celtic Park..The Blackie river ran between the Fields..It used to change colour all the time..One day green..next day a blue tinge..some days a light orange..and there where the area dogs, swimming in it and drinking it..No wonder why half the dogs in the area were either mad, or blind and mad..never stopped them chasing you though on your bike...

I am not on the wagon or an ex Alcoholic I just never acquired a taste for drink.  I wouldn't care if I never had it. I'd rather have a bar of chocolate. :D

technically speaking a person cannot be ex alcoholic. It is a great thing when people can enjoy themselves without boozing it up.

Hi homesick, it was more than likely the whiff from Andrews flour mill, Northhumberland st. ;)
