A girl named Jean McVeigh lived at the bottom end of Cavendish Street. She sang in the choir in St Kevin's North Queen Street and also at my wedding in St Patrick's.

I remember it well. I stood in it for at least an hour as a child waiting to be served whilst grown-ups bunked the queue. I decided then that when I grew up I would never knowingly push ahead of a child or older person in a queue.

I went to school in the 1960's with the red-haired Frankie McMahon from the Cavendish Street area. He was very able academically, usually scoring 100% in class tests, and had a tremendous footballing talent. He was on the books of some leading clubs in England. Anyone know what became of him?

Don't know Nora but I remember a shop, I cant remember if it was Malachi Morgan's or was it Mason's. My aunt Mrs Kane had a fish and chip shop there for years, do you remember her? She made great stuff and tasty pasties, I used to work there after school on Fridays and Saturdays.
