Hi Billy Beechpark st had three shops plus the cycle shop at the top ,one opposite the Manor bar ,another corner of Conisby st the third just below Connisby st , Jeans chippy became Fusco's and had a great Juke box and one of those primitive game machines where you fired ball bearings around a board  trying to land them down various tubes to win a couple of pennies

Hi Dougie Boy
 
 
I found an old posting about the british legion club adjoining the council yard at the rear of Manor street boys club.  That club was built by Manor St Old Boys who got permission from city hall .  They built and decorated the club on their own time and it was only a  quiet retreat ,I don't think there was any alcohol involved but I was too young for that .  Going back to the early 1940 s I can still remember the wardens name an English man named Mr Afleck .     yours    Tireman
was
Yes Jmac british legion, Roe st entry behind Manor st boys club and adjoining the brickyard  or council yard as they say these days

I don't know the family but I noticed this touching letter from Ellen (Carrick) Dorris in the Belfast Telegraph of Christmas Eve 1965:



Ellen's husband Charles Dorris:

Charles' older brother Henry Dorris was killed in the previous war:
