Minns inn, aka Frenchies.

My friend's uncle lived across the street from Minn's and we would sit in his house watching football and nip across the street and bring back pints of stout from the pub.

I remember having gas to get a tooth out in Areil St clinic,when I came round after it I was unceremoniously dumped out the door onto the Street, I didn't know what day of the week it was & was staggering all over the place & felt sick as a pig :bad: :bad: :(

That oul rubber gas mask they put on you was desperate, I can still smell it, but you were out like a light in in no time flat and didn't know a thing till it was all over.
 Hated it then but would much prefer it to the dreaded needles they give you now.
Jmac it probably wasn't the last time you staggered all over the place sick as a pig  ;) ;)

Peters Hill Baths. Magic. Good photo of the pool SOS. We weren't allowed in the "big" pool, that was reserved for clubs. The two "big" bits of of red corporation triangles of cloth held together with a bit of string they passed of as trunks. Yer knackers hung out all over the place. The wee white starched towel stood up on it's own! Ye had to wash yer ankles in the oul freezin shower down the end and he'd chase you with the big pole till ye did it. Mind you our ankles were always piggin for some reason. How long did we get? half an hour? They said a wee lad drowned in it once and they never seen him on the bottom for a week  :unsure: :unsure:
Somebody else said somewhere on the forum about lukin up the wee girls swimmers but I never remember it being mixed bathing? The noise, the smell, jumping off the changing boxes (if waterboots wasn't lukin) Hated that shower but. In later years up the stairs to the washers on a Friday afternoon. Those were the days eh!!!!!

Our family used to own Hanratty's bar on the Old Lodge Road during the 60's it was on the corner of Conlon St I think, there was a parade of shops opposite with Ina Mc Cleans backery and a chemist.
