Rab Andrews was lead tip in the Hillview FB for many years. I believe he may have passed on, not entirely sure about that ?
Not sure who the leading tip is in the Whiterock FB at the moment, but for some years it was a guy called Alex Orr.
Try the Whiterock Flute band's Facebook page, it may help.  :)
The Adam & Eve house was it next to the graveyard , I used to live in Crimea Street.

There were two large houses between the Graveyard and the Pub. Both were owned by the Robinson family.  :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL,hi, id like to hear and see any old stories, and photos of days gone by and the present  from probably [according to me]lol, the greatest road in the world the SHANKILL, people from the greater shankill have left and went to live  all over the world,they left districts like highfield,springmartin,glencairn,ballysillan
woodvale,crumlin rd,oldpark rd etc,also the old districts of brown sq,hammer,banjo,nick etc,im hoping that the [shankillites] would be able to get in touch with long lost friends,neighbours and loved ones through this forum to reunite,i personally was born in springmount st,[hammer] 1955 relatives[smiths,hoys,loves,leckeys
simms,mckennas,morelands,laverys, taylors etc.[wifes]goddens,mahoods fowlers etc.heres hoping to hear and see a lot of stories and photos from a once and still are very proud people.

Hi Big Bill, wee Al here, I just stumbled across your post on the Shankill forum and told my mum about it she knows all the names you mentioned, She was a Laverty her self ,daughter of rob & eva Laverty, originally from mc Tier st lower Shankill then Paris st, just off Berlin st. She mentioned jack & josey Moreland,John & Mary Hoy, her own parents Rob & Eva Laverty,Lizzie & Ned Taylor, Maggie & Hugh allow, Samuel & Kathleen Margaret Smith, Peggy & Walter Simms / hoy, Mary & John hoy, Sarah Leckey, Myrtle hoy & Bill love from Scotland. She says it was a mountain of a family connection and it would prob take a week to write them all down, hope this helps big bill . I know you started this post years ago but hope you like this reply.
