craigyroo:thats a very groundless hurtful remark, i was born and raised in ballymacarret & i can assure you it was not in any shape or form a ghetto.

REP 1, so sorry to hear Danny has passed away. Was one of my wee pals way back when. I know Pauline and
Denis. Denis was my nephew Mal. Fegan,s best friend. Did you know the Thompsons from Bryson Street?

Hi just wondered if this is the same Pauline O'Neill that went to st monicas 1977 (approximate date) ? My mum Mary rocks (known as molly rocks) went to school with a girl called Pauline ONeill from either the strand or markets area. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks x

Pauline, that is the same girl as I knew her brother Danny very well. Heard lately that Danny has passed away. My nephew that lives here in Canada was best friends with Dennis Rooney and I will try and get the address for you. Stay tuned. :)
