Kathleen,

I went to school with Eleanor Robinson, they lived about 5-6 houses up on the right hand side coming from Sandy Row.?  Funny I was looking to see if I saw any of them in the pictures.

Val

They did live on the right hand side of the street Val. Rene's father died young, when she was still in school. I'm sure it was related to his weight problem somehow. I also remember another school chum of mine from Sandy Row; Ann Rice. Does the name ring any bells ?

Cheers WGS. I always associated Jackie with the Pass band and the Pass itself. I remember the 1st City of Belfast Accordian Band use to meet in the Old House in the Row.

My parents were married in St. Aidans and I went to Sunday School there. Nice to see it again.
 
Oh wait, I'm getting this church mixed up with St Andrew's in Hope St :blush2:
