I knew the Regan family well, They lived down what we used to call the stumps next to the Boyds My granny Mrs Duffy was good friends with Mrs Regan. Have great memories of my childhood living in Carlingford St and had great friends.

The stumps, was that the metal bollards between Rosebery Gardens and Carlingford Street.

Does anyone remember Bobby Kerr from St. Anthony's Parish? I think his family had a shop somewhere close to the church. Bobby would be about 60 now.

it must be said that by 71 daddy winkers was a no go. the days of swinging on the witch's hat were gone for good and a kicking was on the cards instead.
    did they knock daddy winkers lane down or is it still there.

Can remember a Robert Kerr at school. His family owned a fish shop on down the Woodstock from the chapel. Dont recall him ever being called Bobby but the nature of the family business meant that his nickname during his school days was Kipper Kerr ! Heard he went to Manchester to teach nearly 40 yrs ago and be about 57 now

Hi Marcas, Thanks for the info re Kipper Kerr - [or Bobby as I knew him]. I knew him from our college days in England and he began teaching in Manchester but I lost touch with him around 1975. I think he may have gone to Canada but not certain. It was a long shot hoping someone may have contact details for him. He would be about 57 or 58 now. Cheers.

I went to the girls school too, do you remember the hall which had p4 p5 and 6&7 divided by partitions?
And of course Sr Bernadina? I remember the year of the big snow 63, when I was so afraid of missing school, I walked all the way from the top of the cregagh in all that snow only to be told school was closed and to go home again!

Yes I went to mass last year @ St Anthonys and couldn't believe how well the parish had grown since I left 30 years ago. Nowadays it has a large Polish community in the congregation. Also a good choir!
I remember the choir in the gallery with Miss Brady? Do you?
Any one out there get their pink blouses made by Mrs Crilly?
