WHIZZER, THERE WAS NO SHOP AT THE CNR. OF RAGLAN ST. / CYPRUS ST. A SORE HEAD WAS A ROUND KIND OF MADEIRA BUN IT HAD SEVERAL PIECES OF LARGE SUGAR LUMPS. SPREAD OVER THE TOP. AND A THIN BAKING PAPER ROUND THE MIDDLE.

Arkie
You have given many a one a sore head.  When do you go back to work the clubs as a bouncer ?

Hi Folks

I am enjoying this wee discussion on Cyprus Street - my granny lived around the corner in Mc Donnell Street - I don't realy remember many from there except a gut called Jim Mc Laughlin and also The Quigleys and a friend of mine also lived there - mc Cotter. I did go to school with a girl caled Colette Robb but I am not sure what street she came from.

Hi, anyone know the McDonnell family from Cyprus Street? Lived a few doors up from Malachy Morgan.
The biggest lie I ever told was when I said "I never told a lie"
