Didn't live on the Strand but was there a lot during 1971/72 before I left Ireland. I was in the Order of Mallta. The images and faces are still vivid but unfortunately the names excape me. Only just found this site and it has been good to read everones messages in the various boards and a lot of the street names and people are coming back to me. Anyone remember the McCabes (Desi and John). Boxed at St. Matthews but I was crap at it - always got wacked on the neb and gushed everywhere. My brother was a good boxer (under Harry Enright) and all Ireland champion in his weight.
Sorry I won't be able to contribute much but it is really good to read your messages - hope you don't mind me eavesdropping.
Cheers.
