Hi Dermot, was the Divis Castle up past Woodvale Avenue, if so, I remember the Toals (there was a Brendan) as they used to come into our shop many moons ago, they weren't far up from us.

I didn't know that but not surprised, we were bombed out early 70's as well - I've lived in London since 1967. They were a nice family.  It's all very sad but TG things have moved on since the troubles.

Sixth from the left second row is the late Harry Diamond senior. The late John Keenan is not in this photo and it was his brother Pat that worked in the Midland Hotel.

Maybe they both worked in the Midland but at different times.    John worked in the cocktail bar during the period in the early '60's and was still there in 1964 and that is where he met his wife.   :) [size=78%] [/size]

John Keenan the brother of Pat and son of Paul Keenan was never married.
Harry McGavock was involved in the Roughford Inn and he was married to Hugh Keenan's daughter.
