Hello Northstar,
 
Joe Turk was my uncle I remember this building but never but never as a club. Yes Belle the McAnultys were from Moffet St, as I have said before they moved to England and have done rather well. Apalachie, Sean was the good footballer, I spoke to Sammy a couple of years ago he is into music playing guitar etc. And Belle is correct there was a bar corner of Isabella St. The bar some people mention I think was the Oceanic on Little Georges St.
 
 
 
It used to be John Graham,s builder,and handyman from the lodge, yard  and rag place, doorway upstairs from Northill St,was used as a wee club by local young men, the mcnultys,bradleys,fogertys,joe turk ,john docherty,bobby mckeown,all good dart players,and I was the wee lad that run all the message,s for them and paid by the empty bottles,if any of the doneghtys or o,neills who lived facing,are still around,they can supply more info.,
What a marvellous night for a Moondance

The pub at the corner of Little Georges street and the 'Fenian Gut' was the Oceanic or the 'Wee Bar' as we affectionatley knew it. Many a time I had to leave our 'Oul Fella' back from it after his Saturday session.  My Ma and Da used to play 'Housey, Housey' outside Harry Mc Greevy's coal yard on the Spring and Summer evenings.

Never knew the proper name of the bombed out pub at the corner at the corner of Isabella street and Little Georges Street. What I did know was that it was haunted with the 'Ghost' of Herby Hazard. He must have liked pidgeons because the place was full of them. Sad Eh!!
