 I don't think that there ever was a n.l.r. bloke who ever played Rugby Union for Ireland.  I didn't see the game or even highlights but I understand that Scotland is threatening to withdraw from the Commonwealth ? :D

     Shame, shame !!  Even soccer players would have heard of Jack Kyle
              Probably best flyhalf to come out of Ireland/UK,/ Europe
          Watched both matchs. If Aust give away penalties it could be bye bye to the W C.
             Sanchez can score from anywhere. I think he could kick penalties looking over his shoulder.
          Sam, sorry to say that Ireland were maybe  playing below their best, but it looked to me that Arg were far too good

 Sean & Sweeney,

What is N.I.R. Sean.   Did you remember Joe at the Star of the Sea? I came across a family tree in the name of Gerry Mc Cann yesterday.  His brothers were Terence Mc Cann, Sean & Con who all left the Star and I think all went to St Malachy's college. Con owned the Galway Hooker that went down off the coast of Co Down and he and his companion were lost at sea. I was friendly with Gerry and they were a great bunch of brothers.  Years later I met up again with Sean & Con who became famous Basketball personalities and helped to run Rosario Youth club.  When they went to the Star they lived almost opposite the top of the N.L.R. on the Antrim Road opposite the cosy cafe. ;)

    SweenyTodd---did Hughes have  a fruit/ vegie shop in your time? The daughter, Rosie?,  worked in the ticket office in the Lyceum.
             There was also a family lived nearby, won,t put their name up, but the younger daughter was a blinder, as the saying goes
                 Both lived on the road
