I knew him for only a few years when he started drinking in the Scotch House where I worked. He was a pretty nice bloke, but when he got his disability claim it didn't do him any favours. The hangers on came out from everywhere and he seemed to believe they were new found friends. When the money was all spent, the new found friends disappeared.

You are right about Roddy's the pub on the other corner was Dan McGlades. Both were burnt out in the summer of '72.

My da had a pub in Bankmore Streetn which we had to leave that December.
