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.

all the others have deserted the thread and i think ill have to do like wise. only so far you can go with the old memory banks  :smile: . while the parish is very much a changed place and one which many still avoid . it was still were many and us the class of 69 grew up and lived in till are mid /early teens. so unless new life comes and posts i bid farewell.

Interesting thread!  My immediate family (Regan's) hailed from Rosebery Gardens, I wasn't aware that there were Regan's in Adenvohr St (where my sister lives now) but I'm fairly certain they were no relation.  My Regan's did not attend St. Anthony's though, they went to Euston St.
 
I recognise some names on this board, Gary Wilson still lives in the same place and I recall my Dad talking about the Duffy family.
 
My other family name from this area is Sloan, also from Rosebery Gdns but hailed from Thistle Street off the Newtownards Rd.
My older brother knocked around with the Regans from Rosebery Gardens . I think there was a Brian and twins one who was called Ronnie. I see that you come from Mashona Street , I grew up about a 100 yards away in Hillsborough Gardens.

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.
