Sorry folks but I'm a new kid on the block, and referring back to a post by Marcas on Aug 18th 2010 re Kerr's fish shop on Woodstock Road.  In 1953 Hilary Kerr ran a "Draper's" shop and lo and behold in 1954 it changed into a fishmongers!! This info from the Belfast Street Directory.  However many in the parish were very surprised to witness this change, for what did Hilary know about fish and there was a fishmongers a few doors down from him - Gillespies and well established. I don't remember a Robert, obviously Hilary's son but do remember his older brother Michael. Hilary sang in the church choir at St.Anthony's, not very well according to my Dad!!

No.247. Turn left into Woodstock Road off My Lady's Road and it was the 4th/5th shop on the left, maybe not next door to the Post Office but one or two after that. Got it?

again billy good to hear from but it would have nice for to let us know were you went from the woodstock and did you make a career out of your talent of drawing ? bit irritating to only hear a hello and goodbye after 40 years  :angry2:

thanks for that. we all remember him for those great drawings. alway nice to know what became of our fellow class mates. if im right i think billy lived somewhere between radnor st and spring st on the left side of the rd going towards the short strand ? i was down at the house once or twice. hopefully billy might remember if weve forgotten any names on the class reg which weve put together as the orginals are long gone. bit like the school  :D  look forward to hearing from billy.

to all at st anthony,s r.c primary class of 69.
   first off let me say, i,m abit surprised that anybody from that period remembers as much as you all seem too, and also, pleasantly surprised and not less than chuffed that a wee group of ten yr olds are all finding out where we all are, now were slightly older. nice.
   anyway suddenly, on the 10.3.69, we found ourselves on a slowboat to england, but as i found out many yrs later, unlike elvis,we were told to leave the building, god forbid falling in love in n.ireland. one of my da,s old school pals playfully, shoved a gun in his ribs and told him in no uncertain term,s "get out, get out now!! or we,ll burn you out!" bye bye 75 woodstock rd. hello blackburn lancashire....
  my ma,my da six kids, mini clubman, nothing but the clothes on our backs. three days after my eleventh birthday(after passing my 11 plus. going to st malachy,s)
  we were strangers in a strangers land. ill get back to you,s on this one, heads goin abit.

david carlisle sadly passed away afew years back.
paul ohara still about belfast, short strand possible
billy gray ? that name was mentioned b4 and one guy said that was your name ?!  :D  for whatever the reason i alway remembered your surname but not a clue of your first. one thing billy out of all the class your drawings mean your well remembered even if they cant remember your name.
billy gray were was he from ? must have been lower woodstock or short strand ? was he in our class at st anthonys ? if so theres anew name for the reg.

going by the date yous was put out (something which was the norm for those living below my ladys rd to the alberbright rd, been put out at the very start of the troubles) most of us who lived on up the rd towards the cregagh got staying until july 72. so we was 14/15 when leaving and therefore knew each other better. in saying that once you went to seconary school you found new mates and that was the same for everyone. seems agood few of yous who came from lagan village passed the 11+. most of went to gusties.
