HI GUYS,  WELL THIS TIME I'M GONNA SURPRISE YOU BY ASKING ABOUT SOMEONE  WHO COMES AND  I BELIEVE STILL LIVES IN  SANDY ROW.  HIS NAME IS BILLY CRISTIE, NOT SURE IF THE CRISTIE IS SPELT RIGHT.  BUT HE HAS LIVED THERE MOST OF HIS LIVE .  HE WOULD NOT KNOW ME BUT MY SISTER  AND THAT'S ALL I CAN TELL YOU  FOR NOW.   I KNOW HOW MANY COME ON HERE AND ASK AND I ALWAYS TELL THEM THAT IF SOMEONE KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT THE PERSON THEY ARE LOOKING FOR,  THERE WILL BE SOMEONE COME ON WHO KNOWS THEM,  KNOWS SOMEONE WHO KNOWS  THEM,  HA.   THANKS IN ADVANCE.  LIZ :-*


Hello liz just seen this post from you I knew most of the Christies they were friends of my da, Davy mostly but Billy lived across the street from me when I went back for a couple of months and as it happens I was working with a fella in Nottingham a big rangers supporter who had been to Belfast for the 12th obviously we got talking and he said he had stayed in sandy row next thing he rings someone and handed me the phone it was only Billy Christie this was about 4or5 years ago but what a coincidence, don't know if he is still there.

Hi JM  I remember Alex and Mary I also remember a man who rented out bikes for thruppence an hour by the time you got halfway up the street you had a puncture ,or a pedal falling off not forgetting the brakes or the lack of them What fun!! we had in those days !!

Hi John hope you are keeping well and memories bring you comfort  I love a stroll down memory lane yes there can be sadness but I must admit I mostly end up laughing tears rolling down my cheeks thinking of my childhood it could be hard but also funny and loving ,To this day I love my sisters and brother as much if not more than I did then take care my friend M☺☺  M
