as for the pubs. well there was one on the corner of ardgowen st. one on the corner of beersbridge rd/woodstock rd and another on the corner of omeath st or greenore st. cant name them at all. i remember back in 69 the one on the corner of the beersbridge been burned out.
The one on Ardgowan St corner is now Eastenders (can't remember what it was before that).  The one at Omeath St was Harts (their two girls were at school with me). It was an off-licence but regulars used to drink in the back room.  The one at Beersbridge belonged also to a catholic family who went to school at St A's (can't remember their name).  There was another one just past Ravenhill Ave, the Cregagh Inn, which was my Dad's local.
 
The apartments and houses are almost finished and we'll be glad to see the builder's fencing come down.

This photo of the St Anthony's Gaelic Football Team in 1953 was posted on this forum some time ago but I just got another copy via email from Odette Rafferty's brother, Paul,  with some names he remembers from that time.  Anyone recognise anyone else in the photo??

The missing links   BACK ROW  TERENCE MULHALL NEPHEW OF FINTY.  VERNON BRAITHWAITE, BRIAN SMITH, JOE PRICE.
NEXT ROW     BERTIE NULTY NOT McNULTY, JOHN CURRAN, GODFREY HANNIGAN 
NEXT ROW   JOHN MULHALL (BROTHER OF TERENCE AND NEPHEW...)  DENNIS CURRAN (BROTHER OF JOHN)  ??  JACKIE McKEOWN, DAN PRENTICE, ANDY GOODWIN.
NEXT ROW  BRIAN McKEOWN (BROTHER OF JACKIE)  ??  GERALD DOLLAGHAN, GERALD O'LOUGHLIN, BILLY CALLAGHAN,  FRANCIS DOYLE.
A few still missing, does anyone know of their present whereabouts?? Those clad in the light coloured (sky blue) shirts were the first team. Those in darker were the reserves. Sadly I was one of them. A wonderful man and teacher was "Harry" Hart and he introduced Gaelic football to the school and started the team, which brought great excitement and interest to the school and we had some fine players. He lived to a grand old age and died in recent years.

The pub at Beersbridge - The Tramway Bar, owned partly by a Mr.Frank Ward helped by sons Sean and Frankie who lived in one of the houses on Woodstock Road, directly opposite Willowfield Parade. I'm not sure if any attended St. Anthony's, maybe sisters. As another testifies it was one of the first - if not the first pub - to be burnt out in 1969.

going back a bit further...does anyone remember the off licence in Portallo Street. Used to be run by my grandfather Mr Terry Brady. He brought up a family of 10 there. I believe there was an informal bar in the kitchen. The girls had to ''keep dick'' and let them know if a peeler was coming by (unless iit was a peeler who would have a drink there himself that is!)
