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.

hi Rinty do you remember tapping your shoes across the floor when your da used to call you to get up in the morning or do you remember the ghost in Knockers house? Those were the good old days?

Hi Rinty,
Do you still live in the Short Strand? Wanted to know if you knew the Farrelly family of Seaforde Street? My granmother was Sarah Farrelly and my uncle Jimmy Farrelly who was well known in the area. Sadly both are deceased now, but my mothers cousins lived in Kilmood St.
