ULSTER DIGGER.   Thank you for those copies of St. Aidens Parish Magazine. Brought on precious memories ... Passed the church every day on my way to school.   Remembered Rev.Greer and many of the names in the magazine.   Keep them coming!

Val,

I meant St Aidan's. I guess it was the closest for our ones.

Here's a link for the photos I took recently of Sandy Row.  I wrote a bit of information about Sandy Row, if I've got it wrong or you dont agree, let me know.

Once you've had a look at it, click the link at the bottom of the page and it will take you to the photos on Photobucket.  If you're not familiar with photobucket, you can just click the red button at the top right of the page that says SLIDESHOW and just sit back and watch the photos.

If I remember correctly UC I think that arch was put up by the fellas out of the Aghalee. There was no arch anywhere in Sandy Row that time and they decided to put one up to keep the tradition going.

Somebody left a comment saying that it used to be part of Gilpen's furniture and before that a brewery.  So I think you must be right.  Thanks RabRow.  Another thing that has me wondering is 'the girl with the ring'.  Everybody knows about the one by Laganside, but how come there is one at Weaver's Court in Sandy Row?  It's obviously a smaller version, but I'm certain its the same model.

Yeah Harry/Shazza I'm nearly sure it was the old brewery yard and as mentioned in the CD it is where the old UVF did their training. And then they went off to France...
 
''In the brewery yard I'm drilling with wee Sam,Joe Ewart and young McQuillan'' Something like that.
